Selected Test Results

What works

Installation, opening of ebooks, converting the files (I tested all but the CHM option)

What does not

The program does not always close correctly (occasionally I have to go to system monitor to kill the process "reader.exe"). Another problem is that the online stores do not work; however this could be a result of my own ridiculously slow, unstable internet connection.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Device addition/syncing.

Additional Comments

Side notes are that the aesthetics of the program (the scroll bars and buttons not in the title bar) seem as if they are from the Windows 2000 scheme.

I cann't edit my report so I write this.

It's fresh installation on ubuntu 10.04 32 bit, then I override library : "msvcr80" from wine-configuration to "builtin,native" to be able to start reader.
And it seems working well, includes the pictures of the books shows.
Hope its useful!
