Short details EffecientPIM does tasks, calendar, contacts, and notes.

EfficientPIM supports a vanilla GTD system, though people using more automated time management systems (such as TRO) may feel hampered by limited features--such no saved task views.
Can run entirely from any USB flash memory drive, so you can work your schedule on any available Windows computer (without re-installing). World time zones/daylight saving, Skype dial, free SMS alarms, automatic work/life balance and life goals prioritization, likely the most detailed task recurring properties out there, automatic task splitting, full international support, input/search in 17 languages.
