Hi all,

I've been thinking of getting a device to sync my sl-5600 to a desktop computer for some time and while I have not exactly decided yet on whether to get one, I thought I'd want a question answered.

If you're wondering why I don't have the docking station, the sl-5600 I have is a gift which basically came in with the Zaurus (currently running Watapon 1.6.1), a make-shift charger, wireless CF card and a 64 mb sd card.

Anyway, here's my question:

I'm planning on a new desktop and I know Windows is mostly out of the question for my new box.

My choices are: Linux (any flavour, most likely Ubuntu), Mac OSX (and an iMac, probably), or perhaps FreeBSD.

What I'd like to know is that with this, which platform would I have the best chance of doing a pc sync? I'm extremely unfamiliar with PC sync with a Zaurus so I'm interested in listening to what info anyone can provide. I also keep reading about the Qtopia desktop being able to sync or what not, but it's not very clear to me.

Thanks for the input.

Thanks for the input. Could you tell me more of what you did and does that mean that the usb docking station could be used as an interface for samba to access the Zaurus or did you just connect via network?
