Open Workbench by Niku

Does anyone use this software? I see where [url=http://www.ca.com/niku/]Niku has been recently acquired by Computer Associates[/url]. I wonder what that bodes for the future of the open source software...

It is mostly open source. [url=http://www.openworkbench.org/modules.php?name=FAQ&myfaq=yes&id_cat=5&categories =Availability+and+Access#47]The core scheduling engine is not open source[/url].

I understand that Open Workbench was part of a marketing strategy to create interest in Niku's Clarity software. Will CA maintain the same strategy?

As ABT Workbench was being developed, my wife was a PM who was essentially a heavy beta user. They spent a lot of time working with her on tuning the product. I just recently made the connection here. Her opinion, as a PM in software development, was that ABT was a better product than MS Project (at the time, some 5-7 years ago?) for the management work she had to do. (development of enterprise scale multi-tier, database intensive, many multi user software) I have started to experiment with OpenWorkbench to see how it looks today.
