Kindle Paperwhite and Linux

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all, I'm tempted by an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite but I have a few questions that are either specific to this model or maybe to all Kindles (I've never seen one). What happens when you connect one to an Ubuntu PC ? Do you see its content in mass storage mode or is it the same locked-down **** as an iPhone ? If so, can you put pdf, epub, cbz, cbr, etc on it and read them or is it limited to accessing content via wifi/3G only from Amazon ? Yeah, I know it's not out yet, but how do the older models fare on that ? Thanks (Hardware)
