TVD -<br><br>Just a note to let you know that I was able to look at the magazines on this disk on BOTH my laptop PC's, using the Atril document viewer (derived from Adobe-provided code). One PC is a Dell Latitude E5440 connected to my 55" TV, and the other is a Sager NP3146 manufactured by Clevo (Taiwan) to which I connect an external 32" monitor. Both run the latest version of (X)Ubuntu 22.04.2 Linux, but I'm sure that older versions of (X)Ubuntu and Atril would also work. I suspect that it would be viewable on an Apple also, but I won't buy one of those to find out.<br><br>The "Autorun" files in the root folder are useless, as is the overall PDF guide file there, but I can examine all 18 issues by opening them in the PDF sub-folder using Atril.<br><br>Note to the developer -<br>This product caves to the notion that Microsoft has been promoting since the early 90's, that they could dominate the market by forcing software (and hardware) to be Windows-only. This is like Coke/Pepsi lowering their prices to schools and businesses who will agree not to carry the other's product; that's clear monopolistic behavior in my book, but that concept has gone out of style.<br><br>Anyway, it would be fairly easy to create a DVD with a separate folder for each operating environment (Windows/Apple/Linux).<br><br>CT
