Desktop productivity tool No. 8: FreeMind

It's a drawing tool specifically for creating "mind maps," or diagrams that illustrate conceptual frameworks.

The resulting map can be exported as graphics or a data tree (such as an XHTML document), or even as a Web page that replicates the layout of the original mind map.
