OpenProj as a free alternative to MS Project

by Mira Vlach on May 25, 2008:

Application OpenProj is a free, open source desktop alternative to Microsoft Project. It is a useful software tool to manage even more complex projects and track tasks and project timeline.

The tool has a simple and easy-to-use interface which allows you to create work-breakdown structure (WBS), monitor the resources, track the estimated and real duration of each task and also the dependencies between tasks. These are displayed in Gantt chart (see below).
