CrispyBytes DateInTrayEverytime I connect remotely to a Windows system to use one of our legacy applications, I wonder why the XP team put such a useless feature on the date tray applet: how often do you need to modify your date and time, or change your timezone? And conversely, how often do you need to check a date in the past or future? This is one of the small usability things that Gnome does better, as you can see in this image.

Given that the legacy application I have to use the most is our timesheet app, some time ago I decided to look for a free calendar and after digging through quite a bit of Google search results I found the excellent (and free) Date In Tray by CrispyBytes Development. As you can see it’s just a tiny application, but when you’re checking dates it’s a real time saver.

    Ah, but it was never designed for that!

    "the Date/Time control panel was not designed for letting you flip through a calendar. It was designed for changing the system date and time.

    Unaware of its design, people have been using the Date/Time control panel as if it were a calendar, not realizing that it was doing all sorts of scary things behind the scenes"

    I was also trying to find a decent taskbar time/date program. I found LClock. It has not been updated in almost two years but does the job well and shows the information I need at a glance (time/weekday). It also has some "skin" support.
