Cross Platform PIM on a Stick

Filed under
KDE

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.

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
