Abstract

Free time - open calendaring solutions Many free software calendaring solutions have emerged the last ten years. Are they mature and standard-frendly enough to challenge the big entreprise software suites but also the free but proprietary cloud-based solutions ? Caldav protocol brings hope to the market by providing the standard way of communication between calendar servers and clients. Is Caldav complete enough to challenge the proprietary protocols ?
