I am officially in love.
I can't believe how much fun it is to mindmap with the Cintiq 12WX tablet and the free Inkscape vector-drawing program. The Cintiq's integrated display means I can just draw on my mindmap, like the way people do on Tablet PCs. I can zoom in and out by sliding a finger along the touch strip. I can move around by pressing a button on the stylus and then moving in the direction I want. I can quickly switch to pencil mode, switch to selection mode, or delete items with a button press. And Inkscape gives me an infinite canvas to work with...
About the only thing that could make this even better would be for me to use a real mindmapping program that can hide and show outline notes--and index my handwriting, too. Oh, and it would need to run on Linux.
In the meantime, I'm going to have some fun. =D
