I doubt it. They may have just taken the 'easy way'.

Which version of Palm Desktop are you using? Is Windows ME still stable? I
hear about plenty of trouble and woe when it comes to Windows ME, which is
rather buggy, susceptible to viruses (virii) and is not always reliable. A
friend of mine had to recover about 3 times in the past couple of years.

What is the nature of the problem? Does the Desktop fail to detect the Palm
and/or vice versa?

If you would like to make better use of your machine and synchronise your
new Palm, I would advise that you try the Ubuntu Linux Live CD (no changes
to hard-drive, i.e. CD-based trial) and then consider upgrading. It can be
sent to your house for free:


JPilot is already included in the core of Ubuntu, as well as Firefox, Open
Office and many other Open Source applications. I have already installed it
on two of my workstations.


PS - I can still synchronise my Tungsten and M130 with Windows 98, so again,
Windows ME should, in principle, be compatible.
