    I’m looking for a software to manage project, tasks and calendar that I can share with anybody in our company.
    I’m using Things at the moment (more as task management than a GTD software) but it is limited for our needs. What I would like to do is:

    - create project with tasks and due dates,
    assign/receive tasks to/from co-workers; task should contain email, notes, image or other attachments,
    - manage a calendar with task, events showing days before

    The software should be able to sync instantly over our internal network and internet as an option.

    I had a look around but I’m not happy with what I found. I tried Entourage, Remember the milk and BusyCal.
    The only one I liked is Remember the Milk but:

    - there is no offline mode (apart using Google Gears, which, btw does not works with FF or Safari 4.)
    - no way to attach mail or other stuff to tasks
    - no way create project and assign tasks to them

    Any suggestion appreciated? Thx.

    Not sure if Google Wave meets your requirements, but have you tried it? It's still pretty rough.

    Yes, I gave a look to Google docs but I think is a few steps back from remember the milk at the moment, as you said "pretty rough". Moreover we are all using mac mail, calendar, mobileme so I'd rather not move to Google for this.

    I just started using it about 3 weeks ago for a 5-man team and it's working great so far...

    Google Wave does not equal Google Docs

    Found it!

    OmniFocus. That's it. I've been using it for the last 8 months and it is exactly what I was looking for.
