OpenProj is an open source desktop project management application similar to Microsoft Project. On the first glimpse interface looks familiar enough for any MS Project user so there shouldn’t be any significant problems in the beginning. Of course there’s an option to import file from MS Project. It loads tasks, resources and connections between resources and tasks. OpenProj is interoperable with Project, Gantt Charts and PERT charts.
