Thank you oj829, that is exactly why I've avoided it so far and why my comment initially in this thread.

Yeah. Been there, done that. "No need to autorize ade, i just need to open an ePub."
I had forgotten about not autorizing ade when i bought a books days later...

And if you have the two version running, be careful windows won't open ascm files with the un-autorized one...

I think I'm not going to update until I absolutely have to. I hate ADE, and use it only rarely anyway.

I don't think so. I don't actually "have" books in my ADE 1.72 library, although epub droppings (files) stay in my ADE directory unless I clear them out by hand. After I return library books, e.g., the presumably useless husk of a DRM'ed epub stays hanging out in the directory.

After I delete a downloaded purchase, same thing. I have to manually clean out the useless epubs, and at the time of this attempted install, there were about a half-dozen epubs in the ADE library directory, but 0 bought/borrowed books in the ADE library. The installer apparently detected returned library books.

The distortion on the menus and buttons preceded my adding even 1 single (new library) book to ADE 2.0. In fact, I keep my ADE library at 0 books on purpose.

Anyone try it on Wine yet? I know some of the dev releases were broken due to components that wouldn't work under Wine.
Unless adobe got rid of .NET... Didn't had time to try yesterday. Will try this evening maybe.

Was worried about that. I know 1.8 used .net 2.0, which doesn't run under wine. Adobe was like "oh well, not our fault."

Let's see: ADE no longer works under Wine. No more Adobe AIR for Linux. Currently no Adobe Reader X for Linux. No new Flash for Linux. Never any Photoshop for Linux.

It sure seems to me like Adobe has a vendetta against Linux.

I wouldn't say a vendetta, but certainly a choosing of where to focus resources.

What kills me is that almost all ebooks that get read, get read on hardware that runs on some flavor of Linux/*nix. Yet no one selling ebooks thinks having a Linux version of their desktop reading app is a good idea.

What gets me the most, is they're not even developing their developer tools for Linux. A sizable portion of programmers use Linux, and they don't push their dev tools to Linux. For the past decade or so, nearly as many developers use Linux as they do MacOS (and for majority of that time, Linux was ahead of MacOS by a good margin). Its like, "Hey, I'm a developer, I want to give you my money, why won't you take it? Lots of my friends do too."

more ironic is most of the portable devices (like my PEz) that have MR run Linux
