I discovered Freemind in february, when it became Project of the Month in Sourceforge. Never heard of mind maps before, but you have made me a fan of both mind mapping and your tool. I am showing it to other people here in Madrid. For me, it has become an alternative to ¿Power?Point, it even allows you to modify things in the middle of speech. I also use it to keep track of the three different projects I am working on.

I am not yet dependant on it, but I am afraid I might become it any moment...
