Which mind mapper tool are you using ?

Since one year now I am using mind mapping tools to manage knowledge around private and professional projects. I tried only Open Source (but not always free) software :
- FreeMind (http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page) is a standalone Java program
- Xmind (http://www.xmind.net/) is an eclipse extension with a monthly subscription for the professional version
- vym (http://www.insilmaril.de/vym/) is a Qt/C++ program
All are very intuitive and propose import/export for various format but only FreeMind have its Plone addon. It is a flash viewer for .mm files.
None of them propose collaborative edition.
I didn’t find any python program that implement some mind mapping features in pypi neither on search engines.
In January we generalized the use of mind mapping tools and saw that a lot of us had started to use them since a while without communicate around this need. All these softwares can import map from mindmanager but they cannot import or export map from one of them. The work to merge all our maps to one format will be hard.
