X-Mind is a mind-mapping program with a variety of available diagramming tools for flowcharts, organizational charts, timelines, and more. It can be used for brain storming, illustrating or categorizing ideas, note taking, conceptualizing, and more. It supports drag-and-drop of elements, export to other formats, and is compatible with most other mind-mapping programs.

The download is cross platform, functional in OS X and Linux. Some advanced functions are restricted to the pro version but can be removed via Edit - Preferences - XMind Pro and checking "Hide Plus/Pro features".

This program is critically important when you have a mass of vaguely connected topics. Seeing them all grouped nicely into a structure does a very useful magic trick, simplifying and clarifying how you think about almost any topic.

Lintalist is a context sensitive text-expander with abbreviations, shortcuts, plugins, scripts and search. It allows you to store and (incrementally) search and edit texts in bundles and paste a selected text in your active program. The text can be interactive, for example you can automatically insert the current time and date, ask for (basic) user input or make a selection from a list etc and finally it can also run a script. You can use keyboard shortcuts or abbreviations to paste the text (or run the script) without opening the search window. You can also use formatted text (html, markdown and rtf) and images.
