Back in the dark days when I used to run windows I used to use MindJet Mindmanager and I found it to be very good.
Since I have been using Ubuntu as my main operating system I have been trying to find a replacement mind map software to use but have not had any luck finding a good replacment.
So far I have tried VYM, kdisset and Semantik. I have either found them not to be very good or have a nasty habit of crashing.
So I was wondering could anyone recommend good mind mapping software to use under Ubuntu?
Freeplane is a powerful and free software for building the mind maps. It is a redesigned version of the well known FreeMind, and is created by one of FreeMind's key developers. I prefer it over FreeMind since there are more options. Also, questions or problems with the program are answered and fixed MUCH faster.
These answers should be updated as many of these programs appear to be obsoleted. Here is a more current list: https://www.fossmint.com/free-mind-mapping-software-for-linux/ which does NOT include Minder for some reason (probably due to naming, it is difficult to search for "Minder mind mapping software" without a search auto-correcting you away from intended results due to assuming you had a typo or duplicate word)
You could always try running MindJet MindManager under Wine. Apparently some people have had some success doing so. If all else fails, you could run a windows guest system on an Ubuntu host via Virtualbox.
