For a calendaring system, you can try Netscape Calendar (is it iPlanet
now?), which is a rebadged version of Corporate Software & Technologies'
CorporateTime. It runs on at least Linux, Windows and several unices.
We use CorporateTime rather than Netscape Calendar. Netscape are
dropping/have dropped calendar support anyway, I believe.

That's the UNIX way. Small pieces that do the job that can be used together.
The Microsoft way is bloated, monolithic beasts that try to do everything,
and succeed in doing very little, and poorly. :)
