Organize your mind – FreeMind

Open-source counterpart of MindManager used to organize all your ideas/task/etc (your mind!). I saw some of my collegues using MindManager (the one from Mindset) and though it could be great to organize all my personal tasks, ideas in one place. I then found FreeMind on sourceforge. I don’t know about all the feature of the retail version of MindManager, but FreeMind has everything I need.

I don’t like the fact that it requires the JRE to run it (and I had some problems with it – see below), but otherwise the basic functionalities work pretty well. I seem to have problems using the shortcuts and some other commands, but I guess it’s because of the fact that it runs on Java and is not a native windows application. Anyhow, give it a try, it’s free!

I had some problems launching the .exe because it uses the Java Runtime Environment, but instead, launching the .bat located in the same folder of the .exe works fine.

    There should be a Freemind.bat located in the folder where you installed the program. For me it’s C:\Program Files\FreeMind. For ease of use, I changed all the shortcuts created by the install process (in the start menu and on my desktop) to use the Freemind.bat instead of the .exe.

    If this still doesn’t work, I’ve read that you can try uninstalling FreeMind, the JRE (and all its update if any), manually remove the folder where you installed FreeMind and remove all references to freemind in the registry and try over again (install JRE and FreeMind afterwards).

    Cumbersome to say the least! :/ But hey, it’s free!
