Open source Project Management replaces Microsoft Project & OpenProjRead More
ProjectLibre is an open source alternative to Microsoft Project. It is also the new updated version of OpenProj. We were the developers of OpenProj A compliment to Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice. We have a community site as well at http://www.projectlibre.org It has been downloaded over 500,000 times in 200 countries and was just won InfoWorld "Best of Open Source" award. ProjectLibre is compatible with Microsoft Project 2003, 2007 and 2010 files. You can simply open them on Linux, Mac OS or Windows. ProjectLibre has been rewritten and added key features:
* Compatibility with Microsoft Project 2010
* User Interface improvement
* Printing (does not allow printing)
* Bug fixes
The ProjectLibre team has been the key innovators in project management software. In development of a PPM and cloud/server replacement of Microsoft Project Server. If you download please donate so we can continue https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=PZRJ24PWQE5C8

Don't miss out on important updates!
Very useful software!!!
Miss basic features like "leveling resources". No documentation or help unless you register on the webpage. Basically, does nothing that you can not get from a free online-tool.
Better than opeproj. fix all the bugs!
Far from prime-time: Windows 7, Java 7 u 25 - scrolling takes many seconds, makes SW unusable. UI is poor - the worst of ribbon and the worst of Java Printing is a joke (screen capture turns out to be the only way to get a useful capture). Zooming primitive. Setting the appropriate regional date format is a Java-Windows clusterfrag. The Mac version won't start, gives cryptic error message. Main project forums as spam and split into regions, which makes 0 sense.
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.
