    it is the best of the open source options, which is all i really care about these days. it is not strictly kanboard like trello, as it has other features as well. however, it does have a very nice kanboard feature set comparable to trello.

    there are one other open source trello alternatives which are strictly kanboard, like wekan. however, none of them match up the ui and ux experience of taiga.io

    It has functionality of kanban. It has another version of project of scrum. They are independent, so you can't have them together. I think it's worse than trello. In terms of Kanban, it has much less features.

    Zenkit is a really strong, but simple tool to manage project work in a team. It's built in a way, that makes it easily usable and understandable, even if you are using it for the first time. We are using Zenkit to coordinate our efforts in a small team - and it makes it very easy, to assign tasks, lets you easily keep track of the progress made and never lose sight of what tasks are still open. Definately recommended !

    Still in active development, has a lot of installation options, but have no packaged version for most common Linux systems, like Debian or Debian-based distros (Ubuntu), RedHat/Centos or derived distros. I mean It's not boxed yet, installation with shell script is really ugly now, in 21th century.

    Default color scheme is pink and in version I installed it's real pain to modify it to something more comfortable and convinient.

    Provides an alternative way to organise and view tasks and activities. The hierarchical lists, ease of assignment and tagging provide a nice way to slice work and information a different way. Task based lists can be easier when working with client areas who understand task driven activity easier then story based. The tree structure allows for a more logical break down.

    Trello lacks a place to dump all the ideas and organize them later. what I mean is like a task list view. Quire(https://quire.io) has a task list view. my team and I can dump all our ideas and tasks in the list and later on move the crucial ones to board view for execution. Yep, that's right! Quire has Kanban board too! which is awesome and a win win situation! I really recommend Quire to the small creative teams out there, it can really improve the productivity!
