Last January I discovered a free mind mapping program that I enjoyed using for a while. It's called Blumind I still keep some of the maps I made with this program.
Here's the link to my post: I Finally Found a Mindmap that I Like
Now I'm using a better free mind mapping program called X Mind. This may sound sort of like a commercial but I think the FREE version is more than enough for me.
"XMind is an open source project, which means it's free to download and free to use forever. XMind Plus/Pro with more professional features are also available."
You don't need to purchase the advanced program for personal use.
"...free to download and free to use forever"
Some of its features are best described in this video:

Let me know what you think.
Blumind is still a good program but XMind has more features.
The Free Plane and Free Mind programs were overly complicated and difficult for me.
