Is there a calendar for Windows 7 like in Ubuntu 10.4?

I installed Ubuntu 10.4 (Lucid Lynx) on my laptop a few weeks back, but could never get the ACPI to work, so I had to switch back to using Windows. My favorite part (well, one of my favorite parts) about the operating system was the way I could open the calendar on the taskbar, right click on a date, and then add an appointment or reminder directly from there.

Is there a program that allows you to do that with Windows 7? The way it opens up the date is similar.

Thanks for any help.

    I use a neat little app called Rainlendar. As well as calendar it comes with a to-do list and an events list (which I don't use, so I just turned these off and cleared up desktop space).

    There are skins and stuff for it as well.

    You can download Rainlendar here:

    and I use this vertical skin:

    The closest thing I have found is this free application, GMinder, that lets you add events by right-clicking on the system tray icon. When you do a regular left-click on the systray icon, you can preview all your upcoming events. By the way, it syncs with GCal and requires .NET.Read more at [Broken Link Removed]
