Project.net is open source — you're free to download it, install it, and use it. The complexities of installation and configuration mean that you need to be reasonably skilled in both IT and Project Management to have a satisfying experience installing and configuring it (or any Project Management software, for that matter.)
Here are the steps to getting started on your own with Project.net:
1. Download the latest Project.net version from Sourceforge
2. You'll need to have (at least) an Oracle database, Java, SMTP, and Tomcat running. The Project.net documentation wiki has information on getting started.
3. Start entering project data: tasks, project members, assignments, etc.
If you've got the requisite skills and commitment we believe Project.net is the best overall solution for Project Management / Project Portfolio Management you can implement on your own.
