A fantastic tool!
The ability to install and use from a USB drive would make an enormous difference (to me at least!).
Is it possible that the relevant files could be read from the root folder not from the current location?
On a lesser note integration with Tiddlywiki would also be fantastic.
Regardless, many thanks for a fantastic peice of software.

    I started using Freemind a few days ago. I store the data on my usb,and have installed the client on each machine that I move to (work, home, laptop, etc). Except that the drive letters may be different, it is quite portable... :)

    G'day wildscot,
    Not sure about integration, but it's not hard to get TW to display a mindmap (I use the FlashBrowser).

    I think you can just download the platform independent version http://downloads.sourceforge.net/freemind/freemind-bin-max-0_8_0.zip?use_mirror=belnet
    and unzip it on your USB. I had same wish - to use it without installation, as it is forbidden at my work on Windows to install anything due to lack of admin rights. But as I can run exes, I think it should work. I'll see it on monday.
    Anyways, this package has both .sh Linux script - worked for me on my Debian at home and also an Windows executable. So, it should be no problem to run it without installing. Just need to have java installed as I understand.
