I've done a lot of research for my own uses, and I revisit the options every now and then. What I've found is most of the calendaring solutions out there are actually pretty awful.

I use remind with mutt. I wrote a simple script that translates an Outlook calendar invitation to a remind event, appends the event to my ~/.reminders file, and opens vim with ~/.remind in one window and the invitation in another window for reference so that I can edit the remind event if desired. The script is invoked with a mutt macro. When I receive an ...

I have had experiences with companies using Exchange and Gmail, here are my comments: Exchange (especially 2007) has many many many features, some of which you will never use.

Well if you don't mind using a web browser, I cannot recommend Google Calenders more. It has all that you need. If you use Chrome then you can set it up as an "Application" within chrome. http://www.google.com/calendar EDIT: As the question has been altered to say "Offline ideal" I would mention that Google Gears can be used to make it usable offline.

We also have shared admin rights to a calendar for each of our children, the house, and local events (that we might wish to attend). We both also use Android devices, ...
