Damn Windows-centric vendors

In my studies, I'm using a nice zipper binder with a hole-punched copy of Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised and a set of dividers, all designed to make finding things quick. NAP is selling a CD-ROM version...but it's only available in one proprietary format, with a program, FolioViews, to process it.

I'd love to get it in electronic form and run it on my laptop. There's no way in hell I'll ever run Windows again except for very limited demonstration purposes. Thus, this useful tool is, for me, useless.

Why are vendors still making things only Windows-specific? There are plenty of open standards out there these days. Hell, PDF works just fine. I'd even settle for a version for one of the Palm book readers, of which there are several (and they're pretty much compatible).

Grumble. Back to flipping pages...
