I was expecting to be prompted for the information after choosing "other please specify",
so I assume the proper thing to do is post...

I rarely use PIM applications, but when I do, I always use the provided
date book, phone number, to do list, and notes applications on a Palm IIIc
(or Palm V when traveling very light/slim).

Of course this means carrying an extra device, but I do not have to disrupt my
activity or share screen space on my Zaurus devices.  I also consider the battery
life exceptional, as I do not have to worry about charging very often.

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.
Hardware: SL-C860, 1GB SD card, Anycom Bluetooth, Netgear WiFi, SonyEricsson K610i, Tatonka neoprene soft case (10 € !!!),  Otterbox hard case for outdoors (up to 500 kg pressure, waterproof <= 30 m), misc stuff from shirtpocket.co.uk.
Software: pdaXrom 1.1.0 beta 1, xfce, opie-reader, moin moin, txt2tags, soundtracker, SCiTE, python hacking, GPE apps
Usage: Moving in and around Berlin, Germany. It's used mainly for reading articles and ebooks, mobile internet, writing documents (wiki, word, txt2tags), calendar, time tracking, mp3, movies for my daughter during long trips and a little programming (python, ruby)

I know how you feel. fltDj is an interesting alternative and close to what I need but could do with a bit of polish (and to work properly).

GPE PIM apps are ok but again they seem a bit too much for the Zaurii. I've been using a filofax for the past year and found it very accessible. I want that same level of accessibility in a PIM app. I think I'll have to write my own! (Bringing this whole thread full circle I believe (for those who were paying attention  )

Was using Ko/Pi. However, now that I'm using a BB 8700g I do my calendar, address book, rss feeds, web browsing on the 8700g and all else on my SL-C3000...

I sort of use Outlook - at least I would if I could be bothered to set up syncing with my mobile (which is more useful as I always have it with me).

An Outlook one-way sync would be easy enough to implement using VBA, though it would be nice if the same Outlook backend could be used for any other PIM apps (Opie, GPE, KO/PI).

More interesting for me would be syncing between my phone and my Zaurus/etc.

Ditto. Now that I've got an E70 I would be very interested in (at the very least) how to keep contacts/address book in sync. The frustrating thing is that thumbnails don't want to travel between phone<->zaurus.

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 ...

KDE pim.The same for me. Pretty fast, talking about my sl-5500, and obviously faster in the clamshell.
