And what's more, categories are more like tags; WAY more useful.  I can (for
example) have a category called shopping and a category called Staples so I
can filter just to Staples items when I'm there.  I can have the exact same
item tagged to filter to another store too.  They're not mutually exclusive
like the Palm has.

As far as I know, GPE stores its to-do list in a data base, which is (at

Why not?  You can sort by any field in a database, so if there was a
"manual_sort" field it would work.

For this to be a successful task list on my n800 it needs 2 basic things:
1) (at least the option for) Finger-friendly checkboxes.  I don't like
Hildon checkboxes, and this 3-way one is microscopic!  I'd actually like to
see a focus-magnify thing like the Palm address book has.
2) Subtasks!

After that, it would be *nice to have* a few other things, but without them
it's still very workable.

I have quite a few more suggestions for the calendar but I don't know where
to send them either.
