Project Management Tool


I'm looking for a Project Management Freeware

Not as fancy as Microsoft Project but a bit better
than an Excel spreadsheet

And something which is better organised than the Tasks in OutLook

I quite like jxProject (http://www.jxproject.com). It's a nice little Java application. It's author is really responsive.

Gahh!  I didn't catch the freeware bit.  Still, the product is fairly cheap.  $100/license

Project management software is mainly used when you have multiple developers, right? And stuff like source-forge is inappropriate because its not open-source? It sounds like the OP is working on fairly complex commercial software?

If this is true, I'm just curious why your firm has mandated freeware only for such a critical piece of software. Maybe you could talk to them...

Hey Sinclair, we don't want to pay for your software, either.

Think about it...

He probably has Excel, which is not freeware, so he can't be that averse to paying for software.
