Will Nook be sold to Rakuten Kobo?

So Nook runs on phones and maybe PCs. And they killed (official?) PC downloads.

But that's just not true. The Windows 10 Nook app does download books, just like K4PC.

Now, there used to be an easily findable key in the old Nook programs that I guess is more hidden in the Nook app. So stripping DRM from downloaded books might be a challenge. But it's not true that there's no official PC downloads from Nook.

Nook has a native Windows 10 app?
Not the old Win8 app?
That's an improvement.

Edit: Aww, it's the same old Win8 app.

Either way, it does download epubs. So you can download Nook books.

IS there a download outside of the MS Store?

I couldn't say. Like Amazon, I use the B&N program that runs on my PC and lets me download. I haven't continued to see what other options are available for either company.

No downloading on my MAC machines, or my older windows machines.
