Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

Sorry OT.


At this point, the only reason I hav a Windows native partition is to boot over for gaming and support some legacy locked-in data (PalmOS software and Motorolas windows only backup/sync software).


AFAIK there's gammu and moto4lin which support Motorola mobiles, I also think kmobiletools and startalk does it as well. I've used it with my L6. All these are in the debian sid repos. One less reason to boot into windows ;)

Cheers Cycoj,

I'll be checking those apps out tonight. My old Outlook/PalmOS/Motorola may become Evolution/N800/Motorola if I can get all the bits talking. Just being able to work with my phone will be a big step forward though.

The PalmOS issues will go way (too ebay) the moment I can fully replace all it's functions with the N800.
