I use BlackBerry Enterprise Server for wireless sync. BES and Exchange
are not what I would call 100% Linux, though.

Since I got my Blackberry Bold a year or so ago, I've been syncing it
Outlook (blech!) inside a VMWare virtual machine because I had no luck 
syncing it with evolution, iceowl, etc. When I used opensync with barry,

it would work sort of, but then frequently just hang during the sync, 
which left the information unstable. Every few months I try again, with 
similar results.

So, I need to know - has anyone on the list actually got a blackberry 
syncing contacts and calendar with a 100% linux solution? If so, I would

love to get particulars from you.
