OPENPROJ – open sourse replacement for Microsoft Project

Picking up on the blogs of others (linux world and open source advocate), I am really pleased to hear of a new open source substitute for MS Project, a project management piece of software.

OPENPROJ is currently in beta, and runs cross patform using Java.  Now I’m not normally a fan of the common java software interface, but I’m looking forward to using this for my business R&D planning.

After previous discussions with Senokian about such software some weeks ago, I resorted to planning a current project using a gantt chart  using open office calc.  its OK, but coudl be better.

I hope that OPENPROJ works well for me, I’ll give it a go, but I’ve never used Project management software before.

  • Hi Adrian,

    There are a couple of alternative project management apps that I would recommend you look at in the OSS domain:

    dotproject (web based, php application – great for multiple users/team working etc…)

    Planner (Gnome based desktop PMS – similar to MS Project)
