FreeMind is a premier free mind-mapping software written in Java. The operation and navigation of FreeMind is faster than that of MindManager because of one-click “fold / unfold” and “follow link” operations. It has features and performs pretty much the same no matter the platform you are using.
When you are looking to diagram complex topics and need a reliable piece of software that you can learn quickly, this is it. When you are done, you can export your mind map as an HTML/XHTML, PDF, OpenDocument, SVG, or PNG format depending on your needs.
While the interface isn’t as shiny and fancy as some other mind mapping software, FreeMind has it where it counts.
