94. Open Workbench

Sponsored by CA's Clarity, Open Workbench claims to be "the only open source Windows-based desktop application that provides robust project management functionality."

99. Plandora

In addition to the usual assortment of Gantt charts and resource charts, Plandora also provides a Balanced Scorecard report for tracking key performance indicators (KPIs).

It works independently or as part of phpGroupware, and it's also included in GNU Enterprise. Operating System: Windows, Linux. Commercial Support Available? No

101. BORG Calendar

Despite the name, this project has nothing to do with Star Trek-in this case, "BORG" stands for "Berger-Organizer." It's a combination calendar/project manager that offers much better project tracking capabilities that most calendars apps (like Outlook, for example), but it's not nearly as robust as most Microsoft Project replacements. It's best for individuals or small groups who want monitor ongoing projects from daily/weekly/monthly calendars instead of Gantt charts. Operating System: OS Independent. Commercial Support Available? No
