I wonder if they'd be willing to answer questions about the differences between the two. When I have a choice between to pbooks in a store, I can tell if one has a nicer layout or better paper or more-recent cover, or an intro by a famous person, or whatever.

Are formatting differences involved, and pictures... or does the DRM really add almost 500kb to the file?

FW doesn't tell you what the difference between the editions is.
Even cheaper is Feedbook's version. It's FREE! The copyright wasn't renewed on this book and it went into the public domain.

[Edit: According to Wikipedia, "A 50th Anniversary Edition was published in 1995 including an appendix which reproduces the entire original British edition with Ayn Rand's handwritten editorial changes." Maybe this is what is being sold by Fictionwise?]
