Re: Nook Reader on Debian PC?

If the mac version is for osx and debian has a dmg extractor, you may be 
able either to run the mac version under debian or build the debian 
version if source code is available then run it.  Mac isn't Linux, but 
it's lots closer to Linux than anything Microsoft ever wrote.  Something 
close to darwin version of Linux than any other version.
