    Does anyone know of any calendaring app for Windows that has the functionality of iCal? especially the multiple calendars

    A long time ago, I used something called CalendarScope. That was back when Windows 2000 was new....

    I liked it, though.

    Palm Desktop might count, and it is free to download too.

    www.palm.com

    Nice app, not as nice as iCal though.

    meeting maker? not free and I personally like iCal much better but meeting maker can be used by multiple users. we are actually looking for an alternative to meeting maker... not sure why I just recommended it.

    Unfortunately I've looked as well, and there is nothing that comes close to iCal's simplicity and ease of use on the Windows platform.

    This Mozilla effort looks promising, however:

    Thanks. I'll give those a look.

    Did an internet search and found eventSherpa (http://www.eventsherpa.com/). Very impressive for a Windows prog but lame compared to iCal.

    It really makes me wonder if there's anything about OS X that makes it intrinsic to develop user friendly software. I know Apple are good at it, but so manny third party apps are too.

    Yet in Windows they can't even clone iCal. Sure eventSherpa is impressive, but totally lacks the things that give iCal its edge such as drag to create events etc.

    Don't Windows coders understand what users want?? have they been so conditioned that they can't see the obvious?

    A bit of a big hammer to crack a nut but Outlook does calendaring.
