Question cross platform calendar app?

My laptop has both WindowsXP and Ubuntu on it. I've shared my Firefox & Thunderbird profiles, so they share information accross the OS barrier. Unfortunately, neither have a calendar, which I've an increasing need for. Sunbird/Lightning is the closest thing that they have to this, but it is still pretty unusable at this stage of development, IMO.

For you people in a similar situation: What do you use?

I don't really care about neccessarily having the same program on both OSs, I just want to make sure that they use the same calendar. So, if I have a Windows program and a Linux program that both save (not export/import, because that would be a lot of work each time I switch OSs) to the same format, where they both can access it, that would be fine. I'm also not 100% opposed to setting up a webDAV server for myself to use for sharing, but I'd really prefer to not have to be connected to the internet to share calendars.

Suggestions, comments?

As a side note, although I already use Thunderbird, I'd be very okay with another email program if it also contained a calendar.
