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.

wonderful light weight enabling piece of software. I love Java GUI a lot, neat on higher resolutions with font smoothing enabled. I wish though if that also extends to text fields in the task list and so on, i.e. smooth fonts and smoother graphics. Fully functional for me even using shortcuts.

Tryed to use it for a simple project : the GUI is buggy, grouping task does not display correctly, copy paste does not update task grid correcty and so on. Unusable currently.

Pretty useful, but I would say that MS Project is more 'fully-fashioned', also because it's now available in cloud too: www.apponfly.com/en/application/microsoft-visio-standard-2013

Useful. But: the Windows Installer creates the button not in the start menu for "all Users", but in the start menu of the actually logged in user. If another user logs in, he can not find the button to start ProjectLibre.

I really want to like this program. I do. I've used it on and off for a few years. It is simply unusable for anything over 20 or 30 entries. Keyboard behaviour is non-standard. It does weird stuff if you use a wheelie mouse. It is agonisingly slow, so as to be unusable. A damn shame, if I'm honest.
