The term 'featureful' obviously varies from individual to individual and
situation to situation. If all you need to do is add a few numbers
together, any calculator will suffice. However, if you require
trigonometry expressions, then obviously you will require a more
'featureful' calculator.

I have used MS Project in the past, and found it to be a rather useful
tool. The learning curve was not as extensive as I had first feared. I
certainly did not find it to be over burdened by an excessive number of
unused features. In fact, I rather appreciated the fact that they were
available if I should ever require them.

In any case, check out: They have a nice
piece of software form what I have heard. I have never actually used it
however, although I plan to at the next appropriate opportunity.
