Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Methods for sync'ing smartphone and tasks? 1

meburke writes: "I made a BIG mistake. I listened to the Microsoft propaganda and bought a Windows 7 smartphone thinking I could sync my phone and Outlook. WARNING!: If you use your Windows PC for organizing your calendars and tasks, you must use Hotmail or Exchange for co-ordinating with your smartphone (and it still won't necessarily work right). Windows 7 smartphones do not sync with Outlook without a couple hours of tweaking.

I need to correct this for myself and for my customers. I went to Outlook because I liked the feature set better than I liked Evolution, and Evolution didn't co-ordinate well with Windows platforms. I am looking for alternatives. The major criteria is that wherever I make an entry; be it a new task, finished task, timesheet, new contact or whatever; it must end up in a single repository on my desktop. The second criteria is that (because I work in both the Windows and *nix environments) I can transfer selected items from one OS to another."
