"Today, if you're in need of a task manager application, you're
looking at a category filled -- perhaps even overfilled -- with
options. If you carry a smartphone, you probably have a to-do list
app in your pocket already.
"Gone are the days when Linux users had to panic over finding a
suitable clone for Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Outlook like Evolution.
Web-based services like Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) provide calendars and
to-do lists that sync with multiple computers and smartphones.

"The gToDo List, a Gnome desktop app, creates multiple lists,
sets alarm notifications when tasks are due, automatically purges
completed tasks if you desire, exports tasks to HTML format and
sorts them according to priority. This app also shows the upcoming
due date or status of tasks and can highlight or hide your tasks
until their due time is reached."
