One Project to rule them all: Microsoft plots end to Project Online while nervous Server looks on

That's odd

MS Projects main feature is to extend end dates by surfacing unwanted dependencies. Usually the process is to do the work item breakdown on a spreadsheet, sketch out the dependencies on paper, work out the critical path, THEN put it all in Project, see it's showing as 3 months later than it should be, take out some dependencies to let loosely coupled tasks run in parallel and then hand it over to a project manager to put in the resournces...but I've never used it on a single day project.
