PDA synchronization capabilities

A nice follow up to this article would be a description of what calendar software works best at synchronizing with various PDAs (say Palm, WinCE, and Zaurus).
After my trusty old Palm Vx spontaneously reset itself a couple of months back, I'm in the market for a new PDA -- but I want one that works, and works well, in a Linux synchronization environment. Overall, Palm + Evolution 1.4 works well, although it doesn't seem to handle modifying just one out of a series of repeating meetings particularly well. (Instead of being a single meeting that repeats 100 times throughout the year, I suddenly had 100 separate meetings--so I could no longer shift the whole set, or just the instances after this particular date, or whatever). When your work consists of 8 or 9 appointments per day, syncing thousands of calendar entries over a serial cable just isn't fun.
I would love to know if KOrganizer does a better job, or if there are any 'match-made-in-heaven' Linux calendars, sync software, and PDAs.
So--any recommendations out there? Or any chance of a follow up article?
