Unfortunately there is no one download link and you have to actually read installation instructions :).

Here are some links for you: Release notes: http://wiki.maemo.org/Eclipse_integration/ReleaseNotes_final Documentation: http://pc-connectivity.garage.maemo.org/2nd_edition/

As a (very) short summary Maemo PC Connectivity provides USB, BlueTooth and WLAN connectivity framework with standard services (like SSH, NFS, SFTP, VNC, DHCP, ZeroConf, Rsync, ...) for Maemo device (N8x0/900). PC Connectivity is not direct replacement for PC Suite but you can do most of the stuff PC Suite does (and more :) with it and Maemo Flasher-3.5 Tool. Maemo PC Connectivity still requires understanding and usage of command line tools so it is not yet end-user product but maybe in future...

It's useful for non-developers with N900s who want to use Bluetooth PAN or have the device share a PC's network connection. It's a small fraction of what the software actually does so you have to dig pretty deep into the documentation to realise it.

Excuse my ignorance, but is this software useful for non-developers. As a user of Ubuntu and with no desire to use Windows for PC Suite, can I use this software to perform maintenence on the phone - i.e. firmware updates, backups etc...?
