Default Anti-Evolution rant.

Hi;
Just getting some stuff about the Evolution program off my chest. If I
can get some suggestions along the way that would be a bonus.

The only use I had for WindowsXP was using Outlook to print out my
calendar. My Windows harddisk died a month ago. It was due;it was old.
But now I have to completely rely on Evolution.

Evolution would do me just fine if I could get my calendar printed the
way I am used to and the way I want. I no longer have any PIM devices
and do I want them. I find devices just interfere with a face-to-face
conversation. I want a piece of paper on which I can write quick notes
to myself without losing eye contact. Old fashioned -- may be -- but it
is what works for me. Windows Outlook used to give me my piece of paper
tasks, appointments and all, that I could fold up and carry in my hip or
shirt pocket.

Three years ago I filled a Request for Enhancement through Gnome
Bugzilla.

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=470934

I seemed to have received some interest at the time so I filed a full
description with diagrams for that bug report. Nothing.

I have even offered to learn enough about Evolution programming to
create it myself. I asked for some advice on how I should get started.
(They seemed to be making programming changes at the time). I thought
needed some simple advice just to get started particularly for creating
print forms. Should it be a plugin? Can I do what I want as a Plugin?
Got nothing.

Now I am on a search for a replacement for Evolution that lets me have
some control over calendar print out forms. Can anybody help?
