Yes I have. My synchronization "nightmare" has quite a history already ;)
But currently the question is not synchronization but just to transfer
my existing contacts (I have lowered my demands quite a lot as you can
see ;) ).
Of course synching would be great. But for now I try to take it one
step at the time :) And as you have already pointed out there is no
GUI for multisync/opensync ... well actually it is but from my
experience it is just a bit specialized xml editor (at leas the
version i have tried).
And just to make it even clearer: My goal is not configuring my
desktop to do exactly what I want by spending at least a month
studying a lot of config files but to get an overview of what already
exists in that area and try to contribute to make the whole open
source PIM experience more user friendly. Thats also why I have chosen
this mailing list :)
