Don't count weekends in days remaining
I think that some people use the program for the job (as me), and the days
of weekends don't be used for work, but in the attribute column of days
remainding, it count all the week.
For example, I have a task that must be completed before 20 of may of 2009
(Wednesday) and today is 14 of may of 2009 (Thursday), then program mark 6
days left. But in Saturday and Sunday I don't work and therefore I really
have 4 days only.
One way to handle this could be to mark notes "business" or "private", with different behavior (counting or not the week-en days) according to this flag (?)

By project do you mean entire .tsk file, or do you mean task?
Is this what you mean:
You want to have weekdays-only versus all-days as a default choice in the preferences but be able to override the default for any task?
I think poeschi's amendment to the original suggestion is excellent. This is how it should be implemented.

Agree with poeschi; a task option would be perfect.
Now that I use this at work, too, I agree. I think it would really only be useful if work days could be programmed. Everyone has different holidays. This is how MS Project does it.
This would be a very usefull function
I like this
I like the idea, but I would add another option is the possibility of vacations, holidays or days off
I think this be a very useful preference to set. Maybe have it as a global preference to set but give the option to over-ride this under Behavior when creating a new Task.
i like this idea as long as it is an option that could be changed for each task. Perhaps an option in the preferences to set how tasks count days by default, and a box that could be checked/unchecked for tasks.
Yes, I'm with poeschi, I don't say it here but I think equal he. What days are counted must be a preference.
I consider this as useful as well - but please make this project dependent.
If I am using Task Coach for my job, it is only weekdays that are relevant, but currently I am renovating my house and I am using TaskCoach here as well - but I am mostly working on weekends and on some holidays.
My recommendation would be to have an option (preferences) per project to select with check boxes, which days should be counted for each project.
Perfect luxury would it be to define this once for a project and the be able to select exceptions on a calendar view or on a list....
