[ba-ohs-talk] Yet another mind manager

I did a quick check. There is another java (LGPL) mind manager that is 
similar to Freemind, but with a few more features.
It's found at http://mak.sourceforge.net
Since there are no screenshots available, I made one of it. See it at 
http://www.nexist.org/mak.gif    (01)

Notice that each node has a title, and a popup visual menu (not the popup 
menu I popped in the picture, but the one over "Tutorial for MAK" 
node.  That popup menu lets you shrink the tree around the node, and do 
other things with the node.    (02)

The other popup, the dark rectangle with TextComponent hilited lets you 
build your map.    (03)

This project, which may (or may not) have been abandoned (the last build is 
dated 20001224 -- "the Christmas Edition", though, there's another build 
mak2.0 BirthdayPreview dated 20010217 <note>I'm displaying the Christmas 
Edition</note> -- also note: patches dated 20010204 and a LanguagePack 
dated 20010104 (possibly French, English, German -- I haven't checked 
yet).  Things that argue against abandonment include a comment by the 
author ("sundance") on 20020802 that discussed replacing the Dictionary 
nodes with a more integrative concept.    (04)

This looks like an interesting project.  Might be possible to build it into 
a read-only applet!    (05)
