Quick review of MindRaider

I like it, in concept.  I’ve liked the “mind map” idea since I ran into it.

Mind Raider is slow to move from note to note on my machine.  Maybe it’s because my X server is running unaccelerated.  (Which sucks for various reasons and is currently unavoidable.)

The deal killer for me was the note entry mode.  If I want an item bolded I have to type <b></b>.  To do other rich-text stuff you have to enter similar HTML.  Ick.  Won’t do it.  Sorry, I’m picky.

Before I dismiss it completely I should probably check to see if there’s an actual rich-text editor plugin, though.

In the mean time, I’ll stick with TreePad.
