Microsoft Reader

A new product from Microsoft using ClearType technology. It is designed to enable eBooks.


I find it stunning. I can read eBooks and they look just like the original. The ClearType technology is fantastic.

Many PocketPc owners feel cheated, as the ROM version of Reader does not support the protection level now included in current e-book titles. Others of us found the ClearType technology no big whoop (does it really support only that one type face - the sans-serif?) and finds the PocketPc implementation slower and clunkier than it should have been. (In fairness, I have yet to find an acceptable alternative reader for my Jornada.) -- JimRussell

Sam - are you using the desktop version?
