JB Software John Boyce
John Boyce produces a wonderful range of freeware, mostly for the Psion 3, but with a considerable amount for the Psion 5 also. Alas, it looks like his wonderful JBData will not port to the Psion 5. For reasons not clear to me, the first web page uses a weird VBScript to attempt to redirect you to an index.htm page (none of my browsers understand it). www.jbsoft.org
Gareth Brandwood

Plptools allows you to mount your Psion on Linux using NFS, using the Psion protocol rather than TCP/IP. No support required on the Psion end. Mixes functions of plp and p3nfsd. Said to work on RH7. Formerly ftp://ftp.to.com/pub/psion/

Plp does an FTP client using Psion protocols, so no Psion support needed. Formerly at http://www.proudman51.freeserve.co.uk/psion/index.html

GNUPoc said to allow you to run the Psion SDK and emulators on a Linux box. www.gnupoc.org or gnupoc.sourceforge.net

Project Sayanara
Freeware. Mark Adams. Conversion of EPOC ER5 Agenda and Contacts documents to native GNOME documents. EPOC services respond to requests over the remote link, and convert the Agenda and Contacts data to an XML-ish format. Linux clients using the PLP link software can connect and output the data in a format which can be read by the GNOME calendar and address book applications (gnomecal and gnomecard). sayanara.sourceforge.net/

SOX (SOund eXchange) which is able to convert between almost any formats you could name, and for the last year or so has included EPOC in its capabilities. (The last version -- 12.17.4 -- was slightly buggy wrt Psion, but is patched.

Using Psion 5 SDK under Linux http://www.oflebbe.de/o.flebbe/sdk/index.html

Linux on a Psion. As at October 2000 they had a boot, and could run vi, jed, perl, basic utilities. Based on Debian ARM port. sourceforge.net/projects/linux-7110/

SavaJE if installed on a CF can be installed on a netbook. June 2001 has agenda app, email and web, mp3 and picture viewer. Remove batteries and run rominst application from the netbook CD to return to Epoc. Alpha, not beta release so far.

Olaf Flebbe describes how to use the Epoc C++ SDK with Linux. Formerly at http://members.linuxstart.com/~oflebbe/sdk

There is a port of WinVNC to the EPOC platform at http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/ Check out the contributions section for it. VNC can access a X-server natively (perhaps). Said to work fine for remote controlling a Mac O/S X. Symbian epoc VNC client in Java offered by IMHOTEK www.imhotek.com

The Linux PDA page for Psion mentions kab2psion, a Perl KDE to CSV utility. Also PsiConv, which is limited to Word to HTML at the time I checked. PsiLin, connects Psion to Linux, as a Unix terminal. Formerly at http://mobilix.org/pda_linux_psion.html

WinEpoc
Win95 desktop appearance, not multiple windows open. hi_spede at yahoo.com said: "I tried WinEPOC for a short while and decided to un-install it. To be fair the program is well written and works well, but it failed on two basic points for me:
1/ does it do anything new or novel compared to EPOC? Not really. It provides all the same features but in a different way, some navigation is a little bit faster but not that significant for me.
2/ Why do I want my Psion to look like Windows? There's no advantage. My brain is big enough to learn the operation of both products. I like the simplicity of Psion navigation.
It also takes memory etc. which I can't justify on a program that fundamentally doesn't add any new features/capabilities. Excellent example of the developers skills, but they would be better used on something different. Formerly http://www.jssolutions.cz/shareware_e.htm
