Very Nice.. You have all the stuff needed to accomplish your project plan...

So far it is a perfect alternative to Project. Everything to do my project plan.

This is not an alternative to MS-Project by any stretch. The interface is poorly designed and will not be acceptable to anyone using MS-Project for project planning, especially large projects. I spent a half hour monkeying around with it before I gave up. If you have no project planning tools at all it might be worth considering.

This is absolutely no alternative to MS-Project.
It is complicated to use, inattractive to see and there is no context sensitive help available (at least for my installation of r1.1.6).
--> still searching for a replacement!

Terrible. Not an alternative. Claims to be able to import MS
project file. I couldn't figure out how to import one and
when I tried a drag-and-drop it crashed.

This is not the way that Microsoft Project work. However you may try, because it gives a different point of view for planning. MsProject emphasize on task duration point of view. OpenWorkBench emphasize on resource availability point of view. So you may get confused if you are coming from the Microsoft Project view. Other than that it is good.
