Simple. Useful. Light.

I'm not sure if it's because it's Java-based, but I'm frustrated by the lack of normal Windows behavior in ProjectLibre. Cntrl-S does not save, Cntrl-X does not cut (it just copies to buffer, the Cntrl-V pastes but leaves original cell as it was), ESC doesn't exit out of dialog boxes, arrow up/down moves the cursor sometimes but not always, highlighting several task rows and choosing to "insert" doesn't insert several rows but instead just adds one (and at unexpected spots), moving/copying a task to an existing summary task does not adjust predecessors for existing tasks in that summary task. Most of this I think is related to it being in Java (would it be that much harder to build for Windows too? I know, easier asked than done...) It's all just a bit too messy to recommend. However, considering that it's free and Project starts at 600 dollars, I'll keep suffering through for at least my current project, since feature-wise it does seem fairly on par with Project.

Has potential, but lacks any real support or even decent documentation. The "help" button takes you to a defunct website. The "community" support is months or years behind and often gives overly simplified answers to questions to make it look like they are doing something. Setting in this software have issues sticking. You may have to set a setting 5 times before it sticks. Tons of bugs. When changing a resources calendar, the software may recalculate a task to be a million days to complete. When copying a resource, if that resource is assigned anywhere, the copy will also be assigned. You cannot delete the copy's assignment without closing the application and reopening, then delete the resource assignment, then restart the software to see the change. Assigning calendars to a resource seems to work, but does not show correctly in the interface. The software often confuses hours with dollars so when a task costs 100,000 dollars, it is automatically scheduled to take 100,000 days to complete. It is clear that this software is being abandoned since these bugs have been present in the software for several months with no information on correcting them. Too bad, it has a lot of potential.

Used it for several projects and it is a wonderful tool with lots of features to manage costs, resources, dates, tasks, completion percentages and more. Initially the learning curve is a little high, but it is worth the effort!
