In the light of the previous post about creating Functional Mindmaps, XMind is another open source tool to help with just that. The software is available for Mac, Windows and Linux, and allows to brainstorm ideas in a social way. Mind maps can be generated to explore abstract requirements or ideas. After a mind map is created, the document can be shared online free of charge. XMind also comes in a Pro version which allows to share your work privately. Pretty cool.

    Xmind is brilliant – Due to it being cross platform means that we can use it office wide.

    Loves RAM though – much more resource intensive than say Freemind

    Garcon, mindmeister seems a great product. Thanks for sharing.

    I hope in the future an offline version (AdobeAir) to allow people designing not connected and after upload when online again.
