A thousand thank yous to the hackers, tinkerers and documentors out there that got me my legally purchased ebook onto my legally owned ebook reader, despite all the noxious DRM.  Heartening community effort.  Equal number of eff yous to the ruinous system responsible for Adobe Digital Editions.

@neil Adobe Digital Editions is such utter ruin. Did you end up using Calibre's DeDRM plugin? I'm always on the lookout for a better way to do that.

@edsu I did yes - it's the only way I found but I'd also love to know of any alternatives. I also had to go through the indignity of installing ADE via Wine and figuring out how to get it working just to get the epub onto my machine to remove the DRM in the first place! What a shambles.

@neil I don’t know if it’s feasible but it would be a killer Docker oneliner.
