XCal does a few things very well, so much so that I'm still using it in preference to many apps with a more modern interface. The winner for me is the ability to click on a date and type a one-line entry into its free-form text box, eg, "12pm Group meeting". XCal then does the rest: it correctly guesses what "12pm" means and raises an alarm at an appropriate time. The same applies (in a slightly less simple way) to regular weekly meetings.
And that's about all I want in a calendar program.
Is there another app that can do the above? If only I could spare the time to write a new GTK2 interface for XCal..
