Can anyone recommend project management software that will suit a novice? I just looking for somewhere that I can write down my thoughts and plans into organised structures which make it clear if I've forgotten anything and make it easy to see dependencies, breakdown tasks, etc.
I've never really used any project management software before so have no preference. Web based would be best so other stakeholders can easily log in for a look.
Should I just install Microsoft Project since it's so common and shouldn't have as steep a learning curve? Are there any decent free/open source solutions?
