Yes, I've been following the openmoko devel list closely since its inception. I'll repeat my wager 
though.. On release I'd punt it won't sync with linux.

Very little information about their PIM apps yet, though the source code release is only a day or 
two away now.. time will tell I guess.

It's like the Qtopia stuff.. the Trolls did "Qtopia Desktop" to enable the Zaurus and similar to 
sync with Outlook, but any syncing solution they came up with for linux was flaky at best and mostly 
just plain unusable (I ran vanilla Qtopia on my iPAQ(s) for a while in the vain hope I could have a 
usable, syncable PIM.. )
