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
Jim Leven

"vi" and a flat file?

Seriously:

1. you've got a number of choices

http://www.latenight-coding.com/joom...ons/qcontacts/
http://coccinella.im/v/linux/rosterAvatarLinux.png.html
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:

'Hope that helps .. PSM
