iCal for PC?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It looks like I'll have to do without my PowerBook for a week or so at some point, as it needs to go back to Apple to have the catch looked at. So, I'll have to just use my PC for a bit. I should be fine in most cases - with the exception of two. First is mail, but I should be able to just use something like Mozilla Thunderbird for that, no? The second is iCal. Here, I can only think of two options - using my iPod (not ideal), or getting a PDA (also not ideal).

So, my question. Is there a bit of software that I can use on the PC that can view, and edit, data I've put into iCal?
Sometimes I tire of this world's ideosyncracies - can I get a transfer to another one please, with new and exciting ideosyncracies?

I use thunderbird, its solid, but not inspired. The mail client in opera is supposed to be very good, but I dont want to have a browser hanging off of it.

As for ical, the calendars are in ICS [?] format, which is the typical calendar format. There are plenty of calendar programs on the PC which at least support importing ICS files.

You can also use the extension to FireFox ( Mozilla's Webbrowser ), or download SunBird, which is a calendar stand-alone version of the one for inside FireFox.

Search for calendar.

I have been using both and downloaded a bunch of Apple's shared calendars into it, too. It supports .ics format just fine.
