Alternatives to FreeMind – FreeMind – free mind mapping software.

This page has a great listing of concept mapping or mind mapping software. I’ve been a proponent and user of IHMC CMAP for some time, but I intend to take a look at some others – particularly FreeMind. I’d be interested to hear anyone else’s thought on the relative merits of using one of the free tools here or paying for a tool like Inspiration or MindManager.
