Nice looking tool -- they make a commercial version for larger buisnesses as well.

OpenProj is a free, open source project management solution. OpenProj is a complete replacement of Microsoft Project and other commercial project solutions. A free download of OpenProj is available here. OpenProj is ideal for desktop project management and is available on Linux, Unix, Mac or Windows.

Sounds interesting. I'll have a look at it. Another free alternative is OpenWorkbench.

Open Workbench is an open source desktop application that provides robust project scheduling and management functionality. Already the scheduling standard for more than 100,000 project managers worldwide, Open Workbench is a free and powerful alternative to Microsoft Project.

I tested it and it met my (marginal) requirements.

Just wondering if there are tutorials for project management software. I've had a bit of a search, but not found anything suitable for the complete beginner.
I tried OWB, but found that their forums were bogged down with spam & consequently very few real replies to queries.
I'm interested in Project Management as I'm considering being the project manager when/if we build a house we're currently dreaming about.
Anyone know of any specific software for construction PM? I've heard of AccuPlan.
