Active Desktop Calendar is a good looking and functional interactive calendar which is visible on the desktop over the wallpaper. A calendar may include your notes and the tasks that you planned. Also there are reminders for your events. A calendar can be viewed in a traditional way or as an icon. There is an interesting possibility of creation of layers for different events and connecting multiple computers to the general file. A big issue of many organizers with all the imposing functionality is the lack of usability. Active Desktop Calendar's developers managed to combine a powerful organizer and wallpaper changing utility so the calendar is always seen, but is not irritating. In the center of the desktop, ADC creates an interactive calendar for the last, present and next months, and in the right corner an elegant, semi transparent panel with the nearest week tasks. By clicking on the date, the user will see the list of planned business instantly.
Active Desktop Calendar is able to «memorize» and regularly inform the user about repeated events. However, the real program «feature» is its layer system – separate organizers functioning simultaneously. An unnecessary layer can be removed at any moment. Users may also create new ones or share their content in a local network. Excellent choice for a home user!

Pete Ghiloni If you have become visually challenged and would like to use a printed notes/task calendar from ADC, you may find the font so small that you can't read it. Following is a reply from ADC support concerning the extremely small font used in the printed calendar.

"Unfortunately what you want is not possible at this moment. We already have that option on our rather large wish-list for future developments, but at this moment we do not know when or if at all any particular suggestion will find its way to the official release."

So much for ADC's position on the use of their calendar by visually disabled users. Not very friendly and a real turn off for me.
