TaskFreak! comes in 3 versions: Original (single and multi user), Time Tracking, and Enterprise.
They are all open source and released under the General Public Licence (GPL) version 3.
Basically you can download the program for free, install it, use it, but if you modify it you have to share the code. Well, if you don't publish it you don't have to, but it's always greatly appreciated. Please not that no support is provided for free. Some users share their knowledge and help others for installation problems on the online forum, but please remember they are all voluntary and unpaid, so be kind and be patient.
Also if you want to request new features, or simply if you are happy using it, please consider making a donation (see at the bottom of the page), or even hire the developer who helped you.
