Rainlendar is a feature rich calendar application that is easy to use and doesn't take much space on your desktop. The application is platform independent so you can run it both on Windows and on Linux. The appearance can be customized with skins and you can even mix different skins together.
- Added "Event min height" setting for the day and weekviews
- Chromophore skin has a large calendar window
- Added colorless and dark versions for the Chromophore skin
- The message store setting in the new calendar wizard did not get set properly
- The times were saved incorrectly if the local time was set to British time zone
- the "uppercase" attribute for the font can convert the text now also to lowercase or capitalize it
- Lua scripts can be put to the Scripts folder under the config folder too
- Skin addons can be applied to different skin version (although this might break the skin)
- The time item which shows only the week number is mapped to the first day of the week so that it is the same number as in the calendar
- The z-position can be set separately for each window in the skin
- Added advanced option to bring all windows on top when any of them is clicked
- The hidden Google calendars are also hidden in Rainlendar
- Tasks were shown on two days in the calendar window
- The tray icon can now show also the week number (See "Number in tray" advanced setting). Note that this only works if the tray icon image has enough frames

It seems great. Tested relatively old versions in the past. But what about WiredChange as an alternative? Much more powerful and also snazzy. It can be found here:

I absolutely love Rainlendar! I consider it one of the few must-have programs, simply because it allows me to display multiple calendars (Outlook, Google Calendar, iCal) in one, on my desktop. L-O-V-E IT!

Shows a calendar(alarm&scheduling), to-do-list, weather & clock on the desktop (depending on the skin which is used, I'm using Statica)). The nicest feature is the synchronization with Google calendar in both ways, ie. if I change something locally the google calendar is updated and vice versa....

Ignorance is a bliss, ain't it? This is not "just" a calendar, it's a calendar app that can pull stuff (and work with) from Google Calendar, iCal, Outlook and even RTM (and a few more i think). Meaning that at the very least it allows you to see appointments and everything from few sources in one place (calendar), which is pretty darn handy, at least to me.
So next time try reading what's the program is about at least.
And overall, well, it might not be perfect or AS good looking as I would like it to be (at least default skins: fugly), but I haven't yet found a better alternative. So if any1 has any ideas, by all means feel free to recommend.
