    A decent Calendar

    I can't figure this one out.

    How come Google can build a Calendar app that rocks in no time and the entire Linux/OSS community haven't been able to build one single calendar in all these years worth the name?

    Yeah yeah I know about Evolution, Lightning etc but I just hate them...poor functionality, lots of bugs, etc etc

    Have you tried Kontact? I've got it setup to sync my calender between 2 computers via ssh, it syncs with my treo, and does a nice job with email too.

    It is ultra-stable, it hasn't failed me once.

    Probably Google can build a calender like that due to the fact that they pay millions of dollars to I'm guessing hundreds of developers to make their software.

    Practice safe text. Never run a command unless you know exactly what it is going to do.

    Re: A decent Calendar

    If you like google's calender so much, why not use it? Even if you're not always online, you could use google-gears to still use your calender. Not sure if gears is ready for the calender yet though, but if it isn't it should be soon.

    I use Sunbird with the google calendar extention and the ics feed. It works like a charm, and i have an anywhere, anytime calendar.
