For Gantt charts I would use OpenProject - a surprisingly feature rich Microsoft Project clone. It makes managing tasks, their relationships to each other and durations really easy. And it's free as well as cross platform (Mac and Windows). It even does a reasonably good job of opening and saving MS project files - granted my project files area pretty straightforward as I primarily use it to manage my tasks, their relationships/dependencies and durations. I don't try to do resource allocation or other stuff that tends to get people frustrated with Project - but at first look OpenProject seems to have all that stuff too...
