[maemo-users] Decent PIM for the N8x0

Hi all,

I must say that I'm disapointed, I've had a Palm 3x, two Palm 5s, an 
Windows CE device and I was very happy to finally have a Linux based box 
.. I don't know Debian, but linux is linux right?

So why can't we get a decent calendar and Contact manager? I've worked 
with Glen on the Celendar and I'm convinced that he's working hard, but 
what I need is quite simple ....... I'm a good Christian boy, and every 
Friday night, Sunday morning and Sunday night I have an assembly, every 
Monday and Wednesday afternoon I teach an English course (I'm a French 
Canadian boy). I get up every morning at 5:45 AM and I've programmed all 
of that in the N800 (2008 OS) .. The software is right up to date, and 
never fails to warn me .. on time every time .. the problem is that it 
usually also warns me 60, 75, 90 and 120 minutes after the apointments 
.. not in a consistent fashion but just randomly every now and again .. 
you would think that it would be possible to get an alarm to work right? 
It is April 2008 .. (sorry Graham, as I said I know youre working hard). 
The fact of it is that I would go back to my Palm or CE, but I HATE 
giving up on a good Linux box ..

I kind of wish that someone would start up an oposing PIM .. Any takers? 
450$ to play Mahjong or Blocks seems a little steep!
