Cross Platform PIM on a Stick

Filed under

Available for memory sticks on Windows or Linux, the new release KDE-PIM/Platform independent lets you carry around your favourite KDE applications and your personal data in the palm of your hand. This device independent software can import your data directly from Outlook and sync it with KDE-PIM running on other computers. Based on the great work of the KDE-PIM developers, KDE-PIM/Pi is available for Windows, Linux and the Zaurus PDA and includes platform independent versions of KAddressbook and KOrganizer (Screenshots).

KOrganizer/Pi (KO/Pi) is based on the embedded version 1.08 beta of KOrganizer from Cornelius Schumacher. Lutz Rogowski has added many features to suite the needs of other platforms and mobile devices. KAddressbook/Pi (KA/Pi) is a port of KAddressbook to the Zaurus and has been started by Ulf Schenk. KDE-PIM/Pi replaces the KDE libraries with a Qt-only wrapper library called "micro KDE". A precompiled "all-in-one" memory stick edition for Windows and Linux and other packages can be downloaded from the SourceForge project page. More info is available at the project homepage.

Learning The Linux File System

Before we get started, let’s avoid any confusion. There are two meanings to the term “File System” in the wonderful world of computing: First, there is the system of files and the directory structure that all of your data is stored in. Second, is the format scheme that is used to write data on mass storage devices like hard drives and SSD’s. We are going to be talking about the first kind of file system here because the average user will interact with his or her file system every time they use a computer, the format that data is written in on their storage devices is usually of little concern to them. The many different file systems that can be used on storage is really only interesting to hardware geeks and is best saved for another discussion. Now that that’s cleared up, we can press on.
