Everybody who has to deal with different (operating) systems probably know this problem. You'd like to keep your calendar entries in sync between all systems, so that you have an accurate schedule independent of which system you are currently working with.
As I had this problem lately, I searched for an easy but OS-independent solution to resolve this problem- and I found one: Google Calendar. Google's calendar application is really powerful (while being - as most google services - free of charge). The calendar makes it easy for me, to have an accurate multi-category schedule, which I can access from everywhere (well, at least where I can access the internet).
Now with Google Calendar as base, I can sync it with my company laptop (running Windows Vista/Outlook), my private laptop (running Mac OS X/iCal) and my Blackberry wireless device. I can do two-way syncs from all devices w/o any issues and I can select which of my categories I want to sync with which system (e. g. on my company laptop, I only sync the "work" category with the Google Calendar, but on the MacBook or my Blackberry I sync all categories).
Thanks Google for this great and free service- it really eases my daily calendar-work.
