It took a lot of work over many years but will be a significant alternative to Microsoft Project!

Our initial goal with ProjectLibre was to launch the ProjectLibre Project Server to produce a complementary server side solution that would replace Microsoft Project Server.  We started down this road, but it was apparent the lack of a valid desktop alternative to Microsoft Project would be an issue for our ultimate mission.  Our first step clearly was providing ProjectLibre on the desktop.  We will release ProjectLibre Server as our second release. We want to build a large community and are pursuing this full time. We'll figure a way to put our kids through college somehow!  We do appreciate  contributions and the opportunity for customization, implementation and training  :-)  There are enormous benefits in replacing Microsoft's proprietary project solutions with ProjectLibre's open source alternative!  Once again, it is released in beta and was downloaded the first two weeks in 134 countries.  You can download it free!

   What an advantage!  ProjectLibre and the ProjectLibre Project Server can be extended as you/we have access to the source code for integration and customization.  There are no more license fees (toll charges) for Microsoft Project Server, Microsoft Server, CALS, SQLServer and other proprietary licenses.  The ProjectLibre team and community is there to help you succeed!  We do provide enterprise support, training, consulting, installation and integration for your deployments of ProjectLibre and the ProjectLibre Project Server.  We look forward to your success using ProjectLibre!

However, ProjectLibre needs an accompanying body of knowledge in the way of online help and templates to become the Microsoft Project alternative of choice for the widest potential audience.

With some more releases and additional user assistance such as online help, I can see ProjectLibre taking its rightful place as a go-to Microsoft Project alternative.
