Post Calendar software for Linux?


I'm in the process of transitioning from Windows to Linux. I use Microsoft Outlook 2003 on Windows for my e-mail, contacts & calendar. Unfortunately Thunderbird only does e-mail.

Can anyone recommend some good open-source Calendar software for Linux? Preferably something that's also compatible with Windows too so I can use it on my work laptop as well. A web interface would be nice too but is not essential.

If you're already using Thunderbird, have a look at the Calendar suite under development from the Mozilla guys at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/. Haven't used it myself, but it looks good and is meant to be compatible. Otherwise, have a look at complete clients such as Evolution, which is similar to Outlook in that it includes e-mail, calendar, tasks, etc. all from one suite.

Yeah, you can install Sunbird as a Thunderbird extension, and it can import all the major calendar types.

Thanks fouldsy, this looks like just the sort of thing I'm after.

Another option, if you use KDE in your Linux distribution, "Kontact" is a very complete Personal Information Management Suite.
