You have to consider that opensource != free. Are you planning to
extend your task/time tracking software yourself? How much that will
cost you in development time that could be billed to a customer doing
real work?

We at Enfold struggled with open source alternatives for many years.
We *never* had time to maintain and extend our task/time tracking
software. Jira has every single feature I ever dreamed of and even
more. The productivity it enables is way more valuable than the price
it carries.

Just my 3 cents.
