Slightly OT - Regarding Palm and security

Currently, I do not have any security enabled on my handspring mainly 
because I hotsync on Linux. 

I'm currently looking at one of the following 3 products:
TrustDigital's PDA Secure:
Palmation's Commander:

Since I routinely use Jpilot on Linux, I want to make sure that these 
products will not prevent me from both syncing on Linux and using the data. 
While most of the data on my PDA is not a problem, I do keep some 
passwords. I think that PDA Secure is a bit overkill. TealLock provides 
both encryption and entry lockout. Palmation's Commander provides the 
lockout, but apparently no encryption. The concern about the encryption is 
my access to the data after a hotsync. And, the ability to sync under 
Linux. From my cursory investigation, Palmation's Commander seems to be 
able to allow syncs on Linux. So, my question is has anyone had experience 
with the above 3 products?
