    Anyone have any recommendations on Project Management Software for Mac OS 10.x?

    I'm use to M$ Project and I can't find an application that is comparable. There are some pretty cool apps that just do certain tasks--scheduling, budgeting, etc.--but I need one that can do it all.

    I got a new iMac at work and I want to slowly--more like quickly-- but surely transition to 100% mac.

    Thanks in advance.

    Might not be what you are looking for, but have you ever thought of using a web service instead? I use Basecamp at work and for my personal business and I couldn't be happier. I can access it from any computer (as can clients), and it's designed a whole lot better than most project management software you can buy.

    Anyways, I just thought I'd throw that out. Here's the site:

    Pretty cool. But walking through the demo/screenshots, I'm not sure it can support gant charts, pert analysis, critical chain etc. Do you use these tools/methods?

    I'll second Merlin. I had a hunt around at the end of last year for an MS project equivalent and after trialling a few I settled on Merlin and have been very happy with it. Of particular interest is that it can happily import & export MS project files, which helps when operating in a mixed windows/mac environment.

    Aww ... Merlin definitey looks a lot better.

    I chose intellisys because it was also available on linux and windows (someone on my team still uses windows for some reason) .... plus my company is a big java fan.

    Project management software alternative

    I use iTaskX everyday.

    http://www.itaskx.com

    This software is BETTER than MS Project. The cost is MUCH less than MS Project as well.

    The interface is similar to MS Project... but much cleaner. This is a true MacOSX native program that will replace MS Project.

    Download a trial and see. I love it!!!!
