Smart Draw 2008 looks excellent!

I'll mention this since I've got it installed already: Visio 2010 also offers timeline support (and maybe 2008). Instructions here.

I have been looking for timeline software as well, for a long time. Apart from Timeline Maker, which is expensive and cheesy looking, I could not find anything until recently.

I was looking for something very simple, and this Python program from The Timeline Project suits me perfectly. It's open-source.

I have also found this freeware called IN-HEH © Timeline, which is more complex, but I have not tried it out yet.

Smart Draw 2008 seems to be the suggested alternative for windows according to Bee.

According to their download page :

Bee Docs Timeline is developed exclusively for Mac OS X. However, if you are looking for a timeline charting application for Windows, we recommend SmartDraw 2008 Standard Edition.

To provide a quality answer, consider explaining what is this alternative, rather than providing only a link, and maybe adding the source of this "suggestion" from Bee. –  Gnoupi Mar 3 '10 at 13:32
