Users have lobbied for a Linux version of EssentialPIM almost from its debut. In the absence of one, many have improvised with various levels of success. We asked Axel, one of these Linux users, to share his experience. This is his story.
For some time now I have tried to write this guest post about running EssentialPIM for Windows (WinEPIM) under Linux.
I have used EssentialPIM for Windows since 2005, but EPIM Android (AEPIM) for only the past four months. There are reasons for this.
