A recent inquiry was made to ask the question whether RIM would release a Linux version of their Blackerry Desktop Manager. The response was less than vague.

So I decided to post a poll to see how many Blackberry users would be interested in having the option to use Blackberry Desktop Manager on Linux. Note: Novell does offer a version for Enterprise server use which is intended for a large LAN but not for personal desktop/laptop users. There's also work being done by WINE developers to have Blackberry Desktop Manager run on Linux. References:
