    Almost everyone thinks Taiga.io is a great alternative to Microsoft Project.

    MS project is a computer based app, not a web app. If i wanted a (self) hosted app, I would make this very clear

    This is a cloud app. MS Project is a desktop app.

    I disagree with the poster who gave this a thumbs down. Not everyone looking for an alternative is looking for like-to-like. For instance if one has one's own webspace and a chromebook or skips between devices then a self hosted alternative with a free starting point would be quite attractive.

    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.

    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.

    Comparing Basecamp with MS Project is like comparing shoes with a car to go from A to B!

    Great software, very user-friendly and with loads of features (including full-blown Gantt) if you pay at least the professional subscription. Great for collaboration and project management. The free version has no Gantt, nor dependencies between tasks,which cripples it substantially in my opinion.

    Many of the MS Project alternatives listed are not based on a waterfall/GANTT-style design, but this is.
