- Use the raw XML files.
The older Zaurus PIM applications (SL-5500) store their data in XML format. One could presumably FTP them from the Zaurus (under the "/home/root/Applications/" directory) and then parse the XML (perhaps using Perl, which comes with MacOSX) and convert it into something compatible with desktop software.
Applies to: SL-5000D, SL-5500

- Use ZMacSync.
There is a shareware tool ZMacSync that syncs Addresses between MacOS X and a Zaurus with SharpROM or Cacko. Refer to http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/23274 for latest updates.

Can I sync with Linux?
- Yes, using QtopiaDesktop
Trolltech has created "QtopiaDesktop" for Linux, which will let you sync the PIM software and transfer files and programs to/from the Zaurus. ftp://ftp.trolltech.com
