Palm Continues to Stink

I like my Treo, I really do. I like the Palm interface and the Palm way of doing things but I have expressed my frustrations previously with Palm desktop software. But my frustration has reached new highs with my upgrade to Vista.

Palm, heck the entire world, knew Vista was coming and yet Palm was not ready for its customers to upgrade. The HotSync software works well and there is a Patch available to sync with Outlook 2007, but the quick install software does not work with Vista and, if I’m reading the forums correctly, Life Drive and whole classes of products are out in the cold.

I know that Palm is an extremely weak company right now and seeking a buyer or to go private, but if they are to provide any value to a buyer they must continue to support their installed base as it upgrades to Vista.
