Joining A Online Library

I'm interested in joining a online library like the Singapore one or this one:

http://www.freelibrary.org/

But I was wondering do you need ADE to borrow books? I have Linux on my computer and of course ADE doesn't run on here and I have given up trying to get it to work through wine. So that's why I wanted to ask. I miss out on so many good book opportunities cause I don't have ADE.

As far as I know, all epub lending libraries require the use of ADE, so you will have to use Windows somewhere if you want to buy or borrow most books. On the other hand, the DRM key extraction script only runs on Windows, so you can kill two birds with one stone.

I run Linux on all my usual computers, but I left a Windows XP partition on my laptop for just these sorts of problems. I guess I'm just more pragmatic than dogmatic - or maybe too lazy to fight that battle.

Ah well doesn't matter! I have always had Linux on this computer as my hubby built it himself and he put Linux straight on to it.
