I used to use Evolution to sync to, when I had Fedora Core 3...
haven't yet set up the Palm sync in Ubuntu. The only weird thing I
noticed (however I am using the default datebook app in the Tungsten
T3), is occasionally when I edited a recurring event on the Palm,
after syncing, I would get them all duplicated in both Evolution and
Palm... I think it was a bug only affecting recurring events, but if
you use them often, be careful. Everything else worked great though
(addresses, tasks, etc).

I keep meaning to set it up again in Ubuntu.. maybe this weekend! :-)
