I have been using Freeplane (and also Freemind) for a few years now. I love the basic functionality, and especially the way that basic tasks like adding and moving nodes can be accomplished with the keyboard (without needing the mouse). I have to say though that the menus need some serious reorganising. I find I'm often having to hunt through every menu option to try and find some features. There are a whole ton of features that have been added over the years that I don't use, and will never use, and yet there they are taking up menu space. I think the app would benefit from a simplified user interface, perhaps where the menu options where configurable so that unused options could be hidden away.
