15.05.17 Freemind - free MindNode alternative

FreeMind is an open source mind-mapping software that competes with MindNode and other similar solutions. FreeMind uses the familiar system of points (or nodes, as they're known in FreeMind) branching out from a central topic, with further nodes splitting off each of these. However, FreeMind really comes into its own with its click-and-drag interface for quick editing, plus HTML support that makes sharing and navigating your maps a piece of cake. It's easy to use, with quick keyboard shortcuts for common tasks like creating new nodes and applying formatting to keep everything organized.  It looks a little dated, and its system of menus is cumbersome, but take a little time to master its shortcuts and you'll find that it's an extremely useful little tool for planning projects, revising for exams, or sparking new ideas.
