What works

Reading both DRM and non-DRM books works well, including full screen.

What does not

Importing eBooks...you must do so manually by copying the ebook in your 'My eBooks' folder (c:/windows/profiles//My Documents) and relaunching the Mobipocket app.  Thumbnail view doesn't display properly when viewing your installed books -- changing to 'Details' will show the titles fine.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Downloading ebooks directly from the integrated store.

Additional Comments

Unlike the 6.1 report, I did not need to install the Gecko engine or do anything fancy to install -- just ran the setup.exe and it installed with no problems. It did crash once but that 1/10 times I opened up the app.

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!
