Q

Replacing Microsoft Project

Office suite expert Solveig Haugland recommends alternatives for Microsoft Project and Web-based apps.

We moved engineering to Linux years ago but management still needs Windows. This is primarily because of Word, Project and PowerPoint compatibilty issues when exchanging data with customers. Our financial app also requires IE and Windows. Can you suggest open source alternatives?

For financial apps, check out my advice regarding bookkeeping applications. There are several alternatives to Project, including Planner. You can see a list of applications here.

Another option to consider is a Web-based application like BaseCamp. It's extremely popular and I've found it easy to use.
