Lightning is a very useful tool to get calendars in thunderbird. But the main point for the users to switch between win and linux with thunderbird and lightning in an easy way is not fullfilled since years. Better you look for the important things first. Until now, there is no open plattform alternative but spicebird - which have also problems with calendarfunctions

Nice, but not yet practical Rated 3 out of 5 stars

For many reasons I would like to move completely away from Outlook to Thunderbird. An essential component in the migration is the calendaring and tasks function.

Towards this end, Lightning is a very nice add-on - as far as it goes. I like the clean interface and the facility to create different calendars, each with its own colour. And to be able to switch calendars on and off.

However, Lightning is just not yet developed to the point where it is a feasible alternative. Reasons are: 1) Only allow one category, which is treated as a simple field. One really needs a list on the side, allowing one to select which categories to show. 2) The interface is just a little too slow. 3) More fields are needed to be able to synchronize effectively with PDA databases. 4) The synchronization solution needs to be worked on - Birdiesync is good, but expensive; Finchsync is too hard to set up for the average user.

These may seem like nice-to-haves, not essentials, but a task and calendaring programme is so much at the centre of organizing one's work and life that it really has to be slick and efficient if it is to be feasible. We need something more than a toy for geeks!

I do hope that the developers see the opportunity of making Thunderbird (with Lightning) a real open source solution to Outlook.

This is so very cool, but only just a thing is missing, configure reminder to be sent by SMS. This is really lovely specially using with Google Calendar.

Excellent calendar, still a few bugs. When I try to check off a task, I still will sometimes get an error message that says "modification failed!" Also, it would be neat to have color tags for tasks like calendar events and to have reminders for when tasks begin as well as when they are due.

I like Lightning very much. Perhaps it isn't as professional as others. But it's free and therefor 5 stars, if only I could give one more.

Moving on to Evolution Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Basically a great add-on and I used it for years. But now I moved all my computers top Opensuse 11.1 64-bit and thought I would in a first step keep Thunderbird. Alas - Lightning not working on 64-bit (and thus only two stars) and so I made the step and changed to Evolution as I lost the belief that Thunderbird will ever deliver what they promised years ago (I was one of the early users. With evolution I now have full Office functionality back as well. Disappointment in Thunderbird is the reason for this change, Lightning imcompatibility for 64Linux just made me do it right now. So far I am very happy I made the change, as much as I regret that Thunderbird never became a professional solution - at least what I understand under "professional".

Gutes Programm - aber ... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ich kenne Lightning und weiß, dass es ein prima Addon ist. Deshalb nervt es mich auch umso mehr, dass ich bei der Installation folgende Meldung bekam:

"Lightning" konnte nicht installiert werden, da es nicht mit dem Firefox-Build-Typ (Linux_x86_64-gcc3) kompatibel ist. Bitte informieren Sie den Autor des Add-ons über dieses Problem."

Schade eigentlich und daher nur 3 Sterne von mir ...
