    LOL some poor engineer at Apple is going to have to write session agent code specifically to get people to stop whining about this issue. :D

    I'm also curious about iCal in Leopard though. I really want to see if some good stuff can be done with iCal Server and the read/write capabilities.... :D

    Well DUH xander. It's a known issue that when iCal ISN'T open it permanently displays July 17, which is the date it was originally released, and no one has figured a real fix yet. You think Apple would've thought of this by now; it really can't be that hard to change.

    Im sure in Mac OS X 10.3 if you opened iCal then quit it, the icon maintained the current date, unlike in Tiger were it returns to July 17th ?

    iCal needs a hell of a lot more than a cosmetic fix. The whole application stinks. Why on earth can't you scroll forward across a weekend in Day View? Why is the interface so bloody clunky? Why is entering information so hit-and-miss?

    I have to admit you are right.

    I use it all the time, but it is a painful application; not Apple-like at all.

    What about birthdays, do they now tell you how old the person will be, very easy to impliement very annoying to leave out.

    I just go a year ahead every October and pop in the ages. Again, bad form.

    The birthdays could certainly use an overhaul, so that having them in Address Book and iCal with yearly reminders and ages just works™. On the other hand most of my friends are in the stage where they do not want to be reminded of their age. :D

    Even though I have gotten used to iCal, I would like to see some major changes.
    As much as we can't stand Micrsoft, I think outlook is not bad for the PC. I like having all my contacts,emails and calender in one application, they are all so tied together as it is. It also allows for less windows to be open at once.

    Another vote for birthday reminder improvements. That's one thing I miss about Outlook.

    biggest problem with iCal:

    it truncates event names in month view!!! At some window sizes, "Paper due" will go onto two lines, at other sizes it will just show me "Paper".

    grrrrrr that sucks.
