I'm not sure as of style. I'm more of a freelancer & work on a crap ton of random projects randomly throughout the day. From web development, to game development.Do you currently have a particular style/system you use? I can offer better suggestions with that in mind. I'm also assuming a Software Development shop, for the ignorant reason of "because that's what I do" - so that would absolutely help out. Lead Engineer for a Gov Contractor here, roughly a 10-man team 6 of which are developers, and I have evaluated damn near everything, paid/un-paid, hosted/un-hosted, name it. There were some we really liked but couldn't use simply because some of the areas we work out of are highly secured and have unique approved software lists, particularly in terms of the browser.
What we've ultimately found to be the most productive? A free-flowing, cluster-fuck of Pivotal Tracker and Google Drive (along w/ my company's WebMeeting service). Seriously. My guys love the dragging-and-dropping of cards within PT, the data model is structured enough to encourage input but not so strict you can't say whatever you want. When we can't butcher that KanBan style into an effective tool we turn to the "scream and see what sticks" methodology of real-time collaboration within Google Drive.
Ive heard pretty good reviews on opengoo, though I believe they changed their name to FengOffice due to some dispute relating to opengoo = opengoogle.opengoo

+1 for Trello, but it needs to integrate with some document service to have that full projecty goodness.
EDIT: Why is this thread tagged "Daddy"???
The $1,500 is the regular price, the $10 cost for 10 users is just a donation. The $10 plan is considered to be the free plan and every $10 dollars goes to some charity chosen by Atlassian. I think it's pretty cool and I respect their initiative.I too have recently been playing with the Atlassian products lately, mostly just confluence. I found that it used quite a bit of ram in its Java environment, I was quite surprised. Something like 1.5gb with no one logged in; that said I'm not sure how it scales for ~10 users on at the same time.
One thing off putting - yeah its 10$ for 10 users, but as soon as I hit 11 users its $1,500 + nearly every addon costs money.
Topic is already up to date: "by s.majdak Posted Yesterday, 01:35 PM" I did not bring the topic back. I tried to be helpful.Whoa, why are we bringing back a topic from July 2013? To increase post count?
Anyway, now that we're talking about free self-hosted project management software, can I ask y'all what you think of Redmine? I still use Redmine for project management. Maybe I'm backwards and stuck in 2009, but is it just me, or have people been switching away from Redmine in favor of JIRA? Why is that?
