I live in Emacs and just use the remind interface for notifications.
They aren't as obvious (read: annoying) as pop-up windows that steal
your mouse and keyboard focus but they work great for me.

Here's my setup.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun my-org-agenda-to-appt ()
  (setq appt-time-msg-list nil)

(add-hook 'org-finalize-agenda-hook 'my-org-agenda-to-appt)
(appt-activate t)
(run-at-time "24:01" nil 'my-org-agenda-to-appt)
(run-at-time "00:59" 3600 'org-save-all-org-buffers)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I've seen other setups for reminder windows and apps on this list so you
might want to search the list archives if you need a different solution.
