I am strongly against PPC, but I will try to give you an honest advice.
Pocket PC is intended to provide a Window$ environment -- a environment that
most people are accustomed to. Whether or no Window$ is a good environment
for work, well, that's a matter of personal preference. One guy in UseNet
called PPC 'mini-Window$' and I believe he was quite correct.
Palm was made to suit the organisational and professional needs of people on
the move. There are many arguments that support it, e.g. comparably small
dimensions, quick navigation and data durability.
I sometimes find myself sitting in front of a powerful PC and yet spending
half an hour working on my Palm, not the keyboard and the mouse. This comes
to prove that different platforms suit different needs.
