      It is very similar to Microsoft Project, but free. The GUI is a bit old styled, but the resulting project graphics are good and uses the same style as Microsoft Project.

      matthewrayner It is great because it gives you gant charts free. thats the only thing it does though and though it;s great some of the others do offer more features however this is the best one that is free to use

      bartovan Standalone WIndows app that is very easily installed (no server needed). Quite complete Gantt features including FS, FF, SS and SF dependencies and the possibility to change task colors. It's rather basic as project management software (no "to do" list per week, no comments on tasks, no display filters, no collaboration...), and a bit old-school looking, but as a free Gantt solution it's one of the best (together with ProjectLibre).

      Basecamp vs Microsoft Project opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Basecamp is still a legitimate alternative to Microsoft Project, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Macopode Comparing Basecamp with MS Project is like comparing shoes with a car to go from A to B!

      Basecamp is very simple project management software. MSP - is the complex software with a lot of functionality and methodologies. MSP is a decision for project professionals with cost value support, advanced resource management, gantt graphics and many other things.
