-2 points because it uses Java to do the computer more slow when opened; -2 points because it crahes editing a file created with it
The latest version as of Nov 2017 (1.6.7) is an aweseome mind mapper! Especially with the GTD+ and Presentation addons, it makes project management, brainstorming, studying,scheduling,and just about everything , easier to handle. Try it, you won't regret it!
I am very much disappointed with the freeplane team. Freeplane is an excellent mindmapping program, a kind of which is unparalleled with other softwares of the same genre. The reason I am disappointed is that the freeplane team do not release the latest version for linux but do so for the windows and mac platform. This is somet kind of a cheating and treason with the Open Source Community. I love freeplane but this behavior from their end to give greatest preference to Windows and Mac operating systems and completely neglecting the GNU/Linux platform should be condemned by all Open Source and Free Software supporters. I have contacted the Freeplane team regarding this but they are turning deaf to my requests.
This program has very good fuctions, but intalled under Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 64-bit malfunctions and denies me as a user, and I'm the only user on this PC. Pity.
This is the best free software app for work with mindmaps!!!
I love mindmaps - and this tool makes using mindmaps easy and fun!
I love this app. I try to use mindmaps for everything...
Great for organizing notes.
