Is there a good, NON-JAVA, non-MS project management tool out there?

I will be starting to work on several small, overlapping projects soon and need a lightweight tool. WANT: Ability to manage 2-3 resources (mostly me, really), schedule tasks, create and output Gantt charts. DO NOT WANT: The security hole of suck known as Java, so Project Libre, OpenProj and the like are right out. MEH, WILL ACCEPT IF NEEDED: Cloud app. I really prefer desktop programs for various reasons, but if the best solution is on the cloud, so be it. A PLEA: I'm going to a presentation on Office 365 tonight with a devotee of MS Project. Please arm me in advance against the call of the dark side!

Emphasis in point form, sorry to be repetitive.
- NO JAVA EVER
- Considered and rejected: Project Libre, OpenProj
- Free is good, but if there's a good commercial solution out there, I will consider it
- The Cloud is to be endured, not embraced. I don't need access from anywhere, and I really don't need to keep track of yet another damn online account. Desktop install would be ideal.
- NO JAVA EVER REALLY I AM NOT KIDDING
I saw several similar questions when I searched before posting this, but I really, really, REALLY am looking for a non-Java solution, ideally desktop. Thanks!
