Request advice on Contact Management Software for Linux
 
I am looking for advice on the best contact management software for Linux, both in the freeware and commercial categories.

Would be grateful for any suggestions or experience.

Regards

"vi" and a flat file?

Seriously:

1. you've got a number of choices

http://www.novell.com/products/deskt...evolution.html
<= I'd *definitely* consider Evolution!

2. Your first decision is if you want your contacts local (the "contact manager" and corresponding database is a local client on your local PC) or web-based.

3. Most of your choices are web based.
That leaves to the problem of locating your contacts on a web server that you trust ... and that you always have convenient access to.

4. Having said all that - maybe your best choice is "the cloud". For example, a "gmail" account and one or more Google tools:
