I vote for Korganizer, which depends upon KDE so it will be a big
install. The current 3.5.9 is very stable, though 3.5.8 seemed to be a
bit more so. The code is currently being ported over to Qt 4, which
should turn out to be an amazing piece of software. Though, I plan on
staying in the 3.x branch for at least another year.

Korganizer can pop up notifications when you need. They can also be
delayed when they popup, like a snooze alarm. The popups have links to
the full event, birthday, or whatnot.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
