I switched to When when I had to switch from Gnome2 to XFCE4 due to the end of support of the former. (In Gnome2, I had used Evolution for the same purposes.) Currently, When meets all my needs, and I do not look for any alternative. I recommend to use it with cal utility. See More
Yorba, the group that developed California, is no longer actively developing software. While Geary (Yorba's mail client) has been adopted by the elementary teams as "Pantheon Mail", both elementary and Gnome have their own calendar projects and it is unlikely that either of them will contribute to California in the future. That being said, California uses evolution data server for all backend/sync/storage related tasks, which should hopefully make it possible to use it even if 3rd party vendors change their APIs/protocols etc. As long as EDS does not introduce backwards incompatible changes or any major California bugs occur (it has been working fine for me so far), the current state of California should remain usable for quite a while.
