Reading those kinds of posts a few times every month.. #same #same

I use Xmind nearly every day. It’s great. I haven’t really used the online collaboration aspect, but even as a desktop app it is very good for a lot of mind map work.

Every once in a while I’m tempted to try one of the paid mind mapping tools (like Novamind), but they are pretty cost prohibitive for the full featured versions…whereas Xmind is free.
