Palm has finally released an official version of the Palm Desktop software that supports Windows Vista. This release is a crucial update for anyone running Vista. 

Palm desktop 6.2 supports the 32-bit version of Windows XP Home, Professional, and Media Center Edition 2005 as well as Vista. But there's no support for Windows 2000, Server, Tablet PC, or 64-bit XP. If you're using XP you might want to hold off on "upgrading" though. There are a few limitations on Palm Desktop 6.2:

  • Birthdays and anniversaries will not show up in the Desktop client.
  • VersaMail Hotsyncing is no longer supported.
  • Color coding of Calendar events is no longer supported.
  • Many older Palm devices including the Treo 650 and T5 are no longer officially supported, although some devices may work to some degree.
