No, I only wanted to know the feedback of users if any.  I dont use any 
project management tool as of now.

But, I dont touch a software just because it works better.  I will touch 
it only if it comes with "nuts and bolts" and I have freedom to repair 
and share the changes with my friends.

If Microsoft comes with a software with "nuts and bolts" I will not mind 
using it.
