as i could see, people are happy with jpilot, gnomepilot, kpilot...
i do not why palm does not coma with API for linux. now we have so many
programs with so many APIes ;-(

jpilot seems best for myself, with keyring plugin is really perfect. just
one concern about printing from jpilot - i have bad expiriencies with
printing weekly view...i had to install icall (which is no longer in
woody...just in potato) to do better printing ;-( (it means another sync
again...;-( )

also restore with jpilot seems to bo not working (jpilot from woody,
J-Pilot version 0.99.2)
