XMind is said to be "the most popular mind mapping tool on the planet".
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. There are also paid versions with more features (and discounted pricing for education). The basic, free Mind Toolbox set is very powerful. Mind Toolbox includes "Relationship", "Boundary", "Summary", "Labels", "Markers", "Notes", and "Drill Down", "Callout"(NEW), "Comments"(NEW), "Information Card"(NEW).
It's available for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and there's a portable version for loading on a flash drive that works with any of those operating systems with no installation required.
