This is simply the best mind map software available. The export function also produces great reports! Most of the functionality is enabled and free and if you need the other functionality, the montly 1-time charge cost is cheap! I've purchased the 1-month option twice to use the extended functionality, but typically I don't need it as it is great as-is. Don't go by the examples on the website as they don't show the true power of this project. It is hard to believe that this is a portable app!

I can agree that this is excellent mindmapping software, better options compared to for example freemind. On the other hand, freemind in combination with ToDoList is even better. Not as a stand-alone app, it is the combination of the apps.

137 mb??? This is a boat anchor.

To save some space, try AppCompactor.

When I have tried to download the exe-file, I have got the error message that I have no rights to download.
Why?

AppCompactor shrank the app by about 1/3 using conservative settings with no obvious ill effects. Still about 100MB, though - the size of a well-dressed WAMP package. That's a big byte out of a small USB stick, and unless you want the functionality, I agree with Andries' suggestion. Notwithstanding, I AM keeping it on my hard drive. Very nice.

If you have Java installed on the Windows computers you usually use, then you can delete the JRE folder under XMind_Windows. With AppCompactor and deleting JRE, the size reduces to about 47 MB.

To avoid downloading the Mac and Linux components and save a lot of bandwidth, use Free Download Manager's zip preview function http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1364
