Does this help?
Adobe DE (Digital Editions) is a Flash based eBook reader for the desktop computer and Sony Reader. Along with reading ePub formatted books, DE can also read PDF files and both of these with or without DRM protection.
Adobe has been a great supporter of ePub; in fact they are also a member of the IDPF, helping to develop the book format itself. When they released their Digital Editions, it was the first eBook reader that could read ePub books.
DE is available for both Windows and Mac computers with Linux currently in development and installation is a very simple process. During installation you will be asked to authorise your computer. You do have the option of refusing this, but any DRM encrypted eBooks you buy will not be transferable to any other computers or devices.
The visual look of DE is quite different to most computer software as it has a dark, brushed metal, grey interface. Personally I like the look, especially as it helps to emphasise the white pages, where the actual reading is done.
Adobe are also wanting to expand DE into other markets, with a current localisation that includes three different languages; English, French and German.
The heart of the path is quite easy. There’s no need to explain anything at length. Let go of love and hate and let things be. That’s all that I do in my own practice.
