Microsoft Project on Linux


Okay, well, it may not be as featureful as MS Project, but you can now finally open MPP (Microsoft Project Files) on Linux!  I am so stoked!  One more notch off the Microsoft Toolbelt!  I'm telling you… now all I need is a Visio-type of app, and I'm golden!

Yes, there are decent diagramming tools out there, and I use Dia quite a bit.  However, I still have LOADS of Visio diagrams out there, and would be nice to open them from time to time.

Anyway, where was I?  Ummm… duhh… Microsoft Project on LInux!  Yeah!  Okay, so the project is called OpenProj (clever name) and does pretty much everything I need it to do.  See the screenshots below (click for larger version):

This screenshot is from opening a previous MS Project 2003 file from my windows machine.

This screenshot was taken from the OpenProj website.

Quoted directly from the website:

OpenProj is ideal for desktop project management and is available on Linux, Unix, Mac or Windows. It even opens existing Microsoft or Primavera files. OpenProj shares the industry's most advanced scheduling engine with Project-ON-Demand and has Gantt Charts, Network Diagrams (PERT Charts), WBS and RBS charts, Earned Value costing and more.

SAAAWEEEETTT!!!!  Rock on!
