After a mindmapping software popularity "boom" and initially watching a coworker use mind mapping software for the first time I admit I was skeptical.  But, for a class I needed to keep track of my notes and, not being a paper person, I thought I'd give it a shot.  I'm very happy with FreeMind and because of it I *actually* keep notes for a change, so I might actually score well :)

Keep up the good work and thanks for making a valuable and very useful open source tool!
