I use a Nokia 6680 which is a Symbian Series 60 phone. KDE-pim doesn't 
seem to have detailed support for nokia according to 
http://www.pi-sync.info/html/projects.html? Or is it pim.kde.org? A 
search for "site:pim.kde.org nokia" shows no rsults though. Correct me 
if I got the wrong URL.
Anyway if I do run wine/qemu/vmware, doesn't that mean that I'll need to 
run Outlook too, for the Nokia PCSync software to talk to and grab data 
from? And if I'm going to run Outlook in an emulator then I don't see 
much reason to leave WinXP.

What do various people on the list do for managing contacts and 
scheduling events?

Chris Smart [chris at kororaa.org] : KDE is prefered, but I'm willing to 
run Gnome on another machine just to synchronise if that helps.
