OpenProj, An Open-Source Project Manager

Finally, an open-source project management application has appeared to add another nail in the coffin of Microsoft's dominance in office applications.

OpenProj
OpenProj is a free, open source project management solution and is intended as a complete replacement of Microsoft Project and other commercial project solutions. Unlike Project, it's compatible with Linux and Mac OS X as well as Windows so it may prove attractive to users of those platforms.

OpenProj is ideal for desktop project management and is available on Linux, Unix, Mac or Windows even opening existing Microsoft or Primavera files. OpenProj an advanced scheduling engine with Project-ON-Demand and has Gantt Charts, Network Diagrams (PERT Charts), WBS and RBS charts, Earned Value costing and more. Another plus point is that it's Java based as well so doesn't rely on Apple's buggy X11 environment to run.

I've been telling businesses about this, especially smaller clients. £200 for Project Standard is little steep.
