I was one of those, too.

I continue to use it, because it has many useful features, but without the calendars many of them remain somewhat shallow:

For example, timelines and even linking are less useful without custom calendars. From a role-playing standpoint, as some folks on this board have already pointed out, they really add to the immersion.
