Example text

All in all, the KPlato of late 2011 looks to be a good solution for project managers who want a simple, good looking and relatively future-proof interface. Once it’s equally easy to install, its cousin Calligra Plan would be an alternative capable of using the same project files. 3 Features Performance Ease of use Documentation 7/10 7/10 8/10 6/10 KPlato may not be the most fullfeatured project manager, but it’s easy and complete enough for most users. com 1/16/12 11:03:25 AM Project planners Roundup GanttPV GanttPV packs lots of functions in a deceptively simple interface.

As we went to press, there were still no binary packages of TaskJuggler 3 available for Linux distributions, but the installation is very simple. TaskJuggler is a Ruby gem, so all that you have to do is get the Rubygems package with the standard software installation procedure for your distribution, and then type at the prompt as the root user: gem install taskjuggler The feature list of TaskJuggler is impressive. The most powerful ones are the automatic tasks conflict resolution and load leveling for all resources, with an unlimited number of scenarios (baselines) of the same project for what-if analysis.

The presence of Calligra Plan on the horizon is another reason why we preferred Kplato. Competition is good, but with software programs it can happen only if their users can reuse the same files, and this seems much more likely between Kplato and Calligra Plan than with any other combination of applications.
