Protection
Well I guess not matter if its a desktop or a PPC firewalls and virus are an issue ?

Do you protect you PPC, what do you use, I guess the concern is slowing down the PPC systems ?

I found this software seams highly rated : http://airscanner.com/

Printing, Fax wireless
What software do you use to print and fax, ( wireless, not with Activesync ) ?
I have seen Print Boy (WM5) and sweetPrint ( not sure its WM5)


Any opinions out there ?

I don't use anything on a Pocket PC - not yet... The only couple of malware developed for this platform were "proof of concept". There's a missing link here: how they replicate. Unlike the desktop platform, there's no automatic replication factor involved, so they would go slowly, to the point of not being in the radar.

No, too limited resources to go running AV software for now. Besides that, all the data (Contacts, Calendar, Tasks) is backed up on a server or Outlook, as all the files.

Simplistic view, of course. There are other factors, but an efficient control on the desktop, plus good backup routine goes easily over this kind of problems on this platform.

As for printing, fax - I don't use these...
