I didn't know about it, installed it tried out with Xfce, but it's buggy too.
* When adding a new event, the program crashes if you press the UTC button to
select your time zone (which the program doesn't figure out by itself).
* I didn't get notified when I added an event with an alarm.

apps or services.
I'm considering using a wristwatch for all my computing again. The desktop
seems death :)
