What is Storm?

Storm is an all-in-one PIM coded for familiar linux on the iPAQ PDA. It's coded entirly in python and aim to be small and fast (we try our best). Although it's aimed at the iPAQ because it's written in python it works on many other systems, even NT (sadly enough).
Current Storm development is moving very fast, thanks to all the energy Colin Marquardt has put into the project helping me (Damien Tanner) make it even better :-)
We're always welcome to suggestions and any help anyone could offer to make Storm a better program, please contacts us. Either submit a Feature Request or Bug Report on the storm-pim source forge project page. Or email me at
