Hello All,
I'm looking for a software to manage all my Professional Tasks/Activities.
I already tried Sunbird but didn't really like its interface.
Something "similar" to Google Calendar would be good.

Thanks.

Sunbird and Google Cal are online tools... is that a requirement?

If yes, have you tried Airset? Zoho? Scrybe? 30 Boxes? (some of these also support off-line mode)

If no, there are 100's. Need more information to guide you.

I need a software. Can NOT be an online tool.

I need something simple.. Don't have more information because I don't have experience with this kind of software.

I need something to track what needs to be done, by what date. What clients need services, dates, addresses, problem description etc.

Imagine I'm a Manager @ Telecommunications Company and need to orientate my technicians, on what tasks need to be done, what clients need service, etc.
Just name a few, and I'll start searching and trying it out.
Thanks

OK... First series of questions:

- single-user or multi-user ?
- if multi-user, is it strickly LAN or do you require some WAN (i.e. web) access ?
- if multi-user, do you need access control, permission levels ?

- Have you fixed a cost to purchase the software(s) ?
- Have you fixed a cost to adapt / configure it for your needs ?

- Have you considered the omnipresent Outlook ?
- Do you require PDA sync ?

Single-User
Don't like Outlook
Doesn't require PDA Sync.

I just need something simple and useful, maybe I'll stick to Sunbird.

It sounds as if you are looking for a Task Manager, but the Google Calendar reference confuses me a bit because that's not so hot at task management.

I'd suggest ToDoList2. Can be used very simply, but has awesome power available. Free. Very active development (and has been for some years). Very responsive developer. But not at all like Google Calendar.

It all depends on the features you need as well as the type of interface you prefer.

Sunbird is another Calendar app rather than a task manager. Is it really a calendar that you need? Spicebird adds email (thunderbird engine) to sunbird derived calendar. Alternative calendar apps would include Essential PIM and Calimanjaro.

I'll second that. I haven't used it myself, but know other who have and are satisfied.

EssentialPIM is also a good affordable choice.

TimeTo is a good choice if you want task/schedule optimization

I used Ecco for years (freeware now), before designing my own.

I know that you said it cannot be an online program, but just in case that changes in the future Backpack by 37 Signals is ideal for what you appear to want.

It is a month to month subscription and gives you either 100 or 1,000, or even unlimited number of web pages as your own personal intranet.  Includes a nice calendar with reminders, lists, notes, images,etc.  As I said it is basically a lot of web pages available to you with easy to create content, all geared toward managing your life, either professional or personal.

You also may want to look at Axosoft OnTime 2008.

It's not always obvious from the website but they give a free one developer license. I've used it since version 2005 and (for my needs) cannot find anything better. It stores its data in MSSQL 2005 (the express version is a free separate download and works great). You get the choice of a standalone Windows app, a web app or integrated into Visual Studio. I use the standalone version.
