Been using this program for over 5 years and it is a good alternative for Microsoft Visio. Although it does not have all Visio's features, but I do not need them for the task that I perform.

Great Mindmapping software. What I most like about it is that I can create mindmaps very quickly by using only the keyboard, withouth having to switch to the mouse all the time. the auto-layout feature works well, as does the presentation mode. And the standard theme for mindmaps also looks very nice.
Stephen, the developer (I believe), is very responsive in the user forum, which is quite active.
