Customizable MS Project alternative?

by prazim / January 28, 2009 3:35 AM PST

I need a tool for project management but need to be able to customize various features, including the default font. Can you recommend one? Open Source is preferable.

What's the budget?

The system we used years ago was in the 6 figure range.

This is for a small business and I am looking for something comparable to MS project for less $$$, or open source.

I'm using an open source tool

I was simply inquiring regarding other available tools. I've already searched using Google and was seeking a tool that might not otherwise have come to my attention.

Every one I know of is on that google list.

like others have stated here, open source might be too technical and expensive for you to handle unless you can handle it yourself. however, there are non-open source alternatives that wont burn a hole in your pocket - check out basecamp (limited free), huddle or (completely free)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
