Some time ago I stumpled upon OpenProj, an open source, free project planning tool like Microsoft Project. Recently, I took it for a ride, just to see what it can do. And I must say, that it looks really complete and nice. So, if you are into gantt chart control and like to avoid M$, I think you should give OpenProj a try.
I am an experienced Java Enterprise developer with a hunger to keep learning. First and foremost, I am a specialist in the Java Enterprise platform, due to Java being my main platform for most of my development years. That said, I have experience in many other languages and platforms, including but not limited to dynamic languages like Ruby and Perl but also systems programming in C/C++ and even a bit of web development in the .Net platform using C#.
