I have sent a PM as well.
I've been working on getting the windows version of the Kobo software running under wine. It works, but doesn't sync with my ereader at all. You have to install the MS VC++ 2008 runtime in order for Kobo Desktop to start. You can install it using winetricks script.
Adobe Digital Editions also works under wine. There is a standalone installer available here
I love that the Kobo software is built with the Qt libraries
since I also develop with Qt.
And thanks for listening to the Linux people too!
I love my Kobo
