Open Source Replacement of Microsoft Project

Projity, the leader in on-demand and open source project software announced that over 25,000 copies of OpenProj have been downloaded in the first week since launching. OpenProj is a free, open source replacement of Microsoft Project and other commercial project management software solutions. OpenProj is adding more than 3,000 users every day with downloads every 21 seconds around the clock. The Projity team announced OpenProj at the LinuxWorld conference and has since been receiving tremendous worldwide interest. OpenProj is already the #5 application out of the 160,000 solutions tracked by Sourceforge.

Projity's solutions are being used to manage projects in over 115 countries around the world. OpenProj offers an alternative for the 28 million users of Microsoft Project and anyone trying to manage projects. OpenProj is a free program that saves users the $1,000 license fee for Microsoft Project and is available on Linux, Unix, Mac or Windows. The rapid adoption is a clear signal the market is endorsing Projity. "We are very excited by the OpenProj software: it clearly fills a gap and we are glad there is now a robust and complete solution for project management from the open source community. We look forward to incorporate it in our distro and make it available to our users," said Francois Bancilhon, CEO Mandriva.

“The Projity team is pleased with the rapid adoption of OpenProj as a standard in the project marketplace with more than 3,000 new users every day adopting OpenProj,” said Marc O’Brien, CEO, Projity. “It is particularly satisfying for our team to see the reception around the world for both OpenProj and Project-ON-Demand. The inflection point has been reached in the adoption of open source software and Projity is working closely with the industry leaders in accelerating this trend.”
