Bought my first ebook on , then spend 2 hours cracking so that I can read it on my Linux computer.
Damn it , I just want to read the book I have payed for, on my own computer.
I don't even mind if I can read my damn book.
What so hard to port your simple reader app to Linux?
If you can't, just throw me the dumb DRM-free epub that I have 100 ways to open.

Hah, that's totally my recent experience with Kobo. Did you find a Linux tool? Because I had to download some shady Windows stuff.

I'm not fine with such DRM because I have the right to backup my stuff for future use and I don't have to remember some adobe id or kobo account to read the book I paid for. And when (not if) they go out of business, I'm locked out forever.

So they tell you you're buying stuff, but actually you're renting it for unknown period. Stuff you actually buy you can gift and your family can inherit.
