Free project management software comparison


It is impossible to find complete all-embracing reviews including all the possible products, because this type of software is widely represented by manifold free PM tools. Actually it just impossible to compare every existing product with others to define which one is the best of all because even if two products nominally have the same features, they can be realized in a completely different way making one of the products less usable than another. Another kind of issue is a style of free downloads: even if you think you are downloading a tool it may appear that it is not completely so, because a lot of companies label their products as being free of charge just to attract more users while their free programs are very reduced copies of their main products which are distributed for money. You should be attentive when making free download to make sure that this tool is really free, but not a mask of shareware, semi-freeware etc.

 Basically you need to know what you are looking for. You may select between web based and desktop based solutions if it is critical for you to work via the Internet or via your corporate LAN, also you can be guided by spectrum of necessary functions. There is a great diversity in this question, because each software product has the set of indispensable functions, but variety of excess functions, as well as manner of their realization, has no single standard, providing developers with a great field for creativity and optimization. The basic example is MS Excel which is not free itself, but its supportive facilities provide you with a possibility to download Excel templates such as for calendar, WBS, task list etc.

 If you are looking just for a simple tool helping you to manage your individual tasks, then you can be satisfied with Google package (web-based) including calendar and to-do list. Actually, PM software based on PHP technology is one of the most used, allowing you to connect such a web-driven tool from any point of the world where Internet is available as well as without regard to system you are using (Windows, Linux, Mac). 

 If you need to collaborate at serious projects then you need to consider if free project management software web tools really work for you as far as some of uncertainties are related to this technology (for example you cannot be sure of complete safety of your corporate data while it is hosted on some remote server). There are a lot of free project management software Outlook-like tools where some disadvantages of this product are fully covered with better solutions. Also there are some Microsoft Project-like products (usually open sourced) which are not so overwhelming in their functionality, but provide you with a friendlier licensing policy, up to the GPL license.
