I use Thunderbird on my Macs and it doesn't sync with the BB.

An alternative is to sync contacts and calendar with Google and then then use the Lightning add-in for calender with T-bird. And sync both T-Bird and the BB with Google.

If you want to sync your TBird contacts with your BB you have to use Zindus to sync them with GMail and then Google Sync (or check the sync contacts box in your Gmail account on BIS) to sync with your BB.

Not enough Thunderbird users for RIM to have bothered with this. Apparently developers don't think the effort is worth it either.

Putting the Google cloud in the middle is a pretty simple way to get the sync you want. Small price to pay (it's free) for getting your sync on.

Nope, at least none that I am aware of. As said here and in many other similar posts, RIM only supports a few PIMS. Since Outlook has the largest installed base, it is the primary one.

An alternative is to sync contacts and calendar with Google and then sync our PDA/BB and PCs/Macs with Google.

Use Google or other search engine to see if you find something. Also check BB App World.
