I've loaded a Kindle reader on several desktop computers and on an
iPad, but I've only been loading free content on it. As I understand
it, though, if you load the Kindle software on a machine, you have a
Kindle, from the vendor's point of view. It is Amazon official
software. Would be pointless for them to push a desktop application
then say you can't use it to buy their stuff.
