Hello,

The problem is that BirdieSync relies on ActiveSync, a technology which is only present on Windows. So adapting BirdieSync to Linux would lead to important development...

although i'm not an expert in this area, but imho activesync can be replaced with synce and the real important think here is the sunbird intergration which you already done.
but anyway is it planed or not even planed?
thanks.

This is an interesting issue to me. I dual boot xp and linux (for development, and school projects) and I would love to be able to sync my phone from either windows or linux (i use the same profile-folder anyway).

But I suppose I could get around it by storing all data on a server, installing birdiesync on that one (and make sure it it runs windows, which it does).. Buy a bluetooth dongle, and then not have to care about OS on my desktop comp.

but you can replace active sync through an tcp/ip connection. On the mobile phone you enter the ip of the syncserver. if the server is available: start sync. maybe its complicated to build a push and pull system based on server and client, but it could solve the boundarie to windows.

Heureux utilisateur de BirdieSync depuis de nombreux mois, je souscris à une portabilité sous Ubuntu (je ne garde win que pour la synchro avec mon HTC), et ce, même si je dois racheter une licence de BirdieSync version Tux ...
Merci d'y réfléchir

Great news that version 2 no longer relies on ActiveSync. Does this by any chance mean that there could be a Linux version? I have a Netbook running Ubuntu and WinXP, but the only reason I use WinXP is to synchronise my Palm Treo. Please please give us a Linux version!
Cheers!

I sign this too, since unix support is the starting point of the NAS server version I'm dreaming... :D

As I see that an Android version of BirdieSync is in development, it would be nice too to have a version for Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, etc.) or to make it usable with Wine. Netbooks are so much faster with Linux.
I dream of a multiplatform BirdieSync (Windows, Linux, MacOs X) and (WM, Android, iPhone).
