    Excellent mind mapping and knowledge management tool. The user interface looks a bit Byzantine and shows that the application has quite some history. However, in general it is usable. There are a few very powerful concepts in Freeplane which are difficult to find in similar tools: * Extensibility through custom scripts and addons * Calculated attributes (very powerful for rollup calculations based on child nodes) * Calculated styles * Node clones. An alternative approach to nodes with multiple parents. Works like herdlinks on the file system

    Brilliant piece of software, the envy of all my colleagues. I have mapped every subject in med-school with inititally freemind, and continue to update with freeplane as a professional. These subjects consist of several thousand nodes. It is an essential part of my work-tools, where i use 3rd party software to present the maps on an ipad mini. I use it for preparing research, teaching, and day to day look-ups. I can only recommend using freeplane, and quickly getting to know the keyboard short-cuts.

    I am a real fan of Freeplan and using it for mindmaps, outlines for writings (and import in libre office), workshops (brainstorm and clustering), workshops (using icons, attributes and filters) even in customer situations. I wish I could do more using fremind - e.g. general graph visualisation and analysis like a lightweight neo4j. But this is really unfair as then it would not be a mindmap anymore. Thank you so much for this really great tool! Best regards, Peter
