Part VI: Appendixes > Desktop Alternatives

E.1. Desktop Alternatives

Palm Desktop, provided by Palm Computing only for the Macintosh and Windows, provides three important functions. It mimics the functions of the PalmPilot on your computer, so that you can edit and create data in bulk for the palmtop. It also backs up the data from the Palm device.
