I am slowly making the shift away from windows and am almost 100% there. I just have two things holding my back. One of which i am asking about here.
I have searched many times and found that for the most part its nearly impossible to sync a pocket pc with a linux box.

Well I cant afford to switch to a palm based phone at the moment so i started thinking about what i used on my windows (pocket pc) based phone. I came up with the following:
Calender/tasks
and contacts

So basically outlook. Again i searched and found very little information on this. and i came to the conclusion that i would try and come up with my own solutions. my first idea was using the ics (Ical) format. I figured it was a pretty universally accepted calender file format. Outlook, Thunderbird, google, ect all use this. but i havent found a way (without using microsoft outlook) to get the ics data onto my pocket pc's mobile virsion of outlook.

has anyone found a way to get calenders, contacts, and or tasks onto the pocket pc from a linux box? (and from the phone to the linux box)

Hello mikhael,

I wouldn't know enough about syncing Pocket PC with Linux boxes, but I searched Google and this was the first link pulled up:
Linux.com :: Sync your Pocket PC with Linux

Hope this helps,

Ax
