Do you mean like the 'tasks' folder of evolution?

There are several ways of running any X program from any machine,
but if you really want a trouble-ticket sort of tracker for
multiple users/groups you might like RT.  It is overkill for a
to-do list, but the price is right:

Yes, but the same program also checks for email which you
need to do anyway - and note that if your own terminal doesn't
have the capacity to run the programs you need you can run
it remotely on a more powerful machine that could be serving
many users.  In fact if you have such a machine you might be
better off running your own desktop as a thin client.
