Making the move from Palm to PocketPC Part III
From PDA247 I found out today that TankerBob wrote the third part of his essay "Moving from Palm to PocketPC" (part one, part two) in which he compares stability, 3rd party PIM applications, alarm handling, registry management and more in his move to Pocket PC. His third week bottom line:
After speeding through program trials involving literally dozens of installs/uninstalls last week, this week proved to be a maintenance learning experience. Although the tools on a PPC differ from those on the Palm, the basic idea remains the same. Leftover preferences on the Palm or spurious registry entries on the PPC both negatively affect their respective platforms. On all handhelds, regular (I recommend daily) full backups provide priceless recovery capability should the worst come to pass.
If you are willing to make the transition, remember to also check out Bob's related essays (I Took The Plunge, PalmOS to Pocket PC: Part I - Intro and PalmOS to Pocket PC: Part II - Conversion).
