Can anyone recommend any freeware/shareware for creating an editable year planner? - or just a regular calendar program which has a mechanism for displaying a whole year at a time.

EDIT: Ok, I'll even consider paying for the software as it looks like this may be a hard to find item.

EDIT: It looks like there is a gap in the market here if anyone feels like writing some shareware... With super large monitors (1920x1200 and up) becoming ever cheaper, editable year planners are now a very viable product... I'll volunteer to beta test it for you :-)

My own favorite is the free EssentialPIM, which has yearly display and much more:

PIM stands for Personal Information Manager, and it allows you to keep all your information in electronic form. All your appointments, tasks, to do lists, notes, contacts and email messages are stored in a graphical and easily accessible form. Fully Netbook compatible!

@Adamv: Almost certainly - I gave him an upvote straight away, but I thought I'd leave it for a couple of days to see what else turned up. – Mick May 23 '10 at 6:30
I've been trying it out for 24 hours... The program is easy to use and visually very clear. Its exactly what I was looking for. – Mick May 23 '10 at 8:02
