The due date is displayed with a coloured background, depending on how far away the date is.

If it’s due today, or overdue, the background is red.

It can be run on any platform on which Ruby can be installed, including Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

Tracks is Open Source, free and licensed under the GNU GPL.

Furthermore, you can set a default context for each of your projects, which saves you typing ‘Office’ for every action in a particular project.
