Microsoft Project or equivalent?

Has anyone used this or anything similar? Basically I was looking to have a central location for everyone in the company to look to see what projects are open, their status, contact info and everything. I don’t think a full CRM package would be needed, a bit overkill. Just something to keep track of projects for everyone to see, something besides the old white board in the office. :smiley:

I’m using GanttProject and am considering using Project Open with it.

Both are open source.

ProjectOpen runs on a Linux or Windows box with VMWare server and GanttProject is a Windows app.
