I'm looking for a program to open a Microsoft ebook file (.lit) on Linux. It's ok if the program just exports the contents to a .txt (formatted or not). The best solution would be a converter to some sane formats (.rtf, .pdf, ...)

There is in fact a program called Convert LIT.

Here are some instructions. That only converts it to HTML though. If you want PDF, someone made a script for that. You'll need html2ps and ps2pdf.
