I'm thinking about writing some apps or something for the Z. I have a 5600, with no syncing software in linux. I know there is multisync, and was thinking about writing a 5600 connector for that, along with some other PIM app stuff. More input the better.

I used to use Kopi / Kapi as they are good PIM apps but they suck on the Z because they are too slow. It was always quite embarrassing to let people wait so long for telling me their contact details or appointment details until these apps are up and ready. Preloading takes too much resources.

So now I'm trying to get used to the GPE pim apps (on pdaXrom) which are quite lean, fast and feature rich enough. They pop up almost instantly. At the moment I am working on making them synchronize with evolution (via multisync) which basically works. I just have database issues with the contacts so they don't sync but tasks and appointments are working fine.

Sorry to hear the bad performance issue with Ko/Pi apps on your Zaurus.
But do you have Fast Load enabled for the Ko/Pi apps ? Having them preloaded does take some memory but not enough to slow down other apps - as far as I have seen (on my C760 as well). But thats a trade-off you have to make.

With fast load on, on my Zaurus (currently C1000, but have used previously on C760) it takes a second to load up the Calendar app and about 2 seconds if other apps are on for the Ko/Addessbook component.

The recent versions of Ko/Pi has a task bar applet too from where you can start and check your calendar events/tasks or contacts - pretty fast.

If that helps ...
