Not sure I would replace Curio with YouMind, though YouMind is intriguing and worth exploring.  Thanks for pointing this out, @donleone.

I am attracted by the motivation of the developer(s) behind very complex freeware or open source software.  The ideas are frequently highly original and energetic—in a sense the technology version of “outsider” or “visionary” art.  If Tinderbox, for example, had been open source would it have kept pace with developments in OS X instead of falling behind for years until it was forced to catch up to avoid extinction.

my quote said “alternative”, and not “replace” ;-))

obviously curio is a native mac app integrated,
and this a “max it to the full possible” freeware,
but which is exactly great for fanatics like me,
since windows users for a long time
had virtually no “alternative” whatsoever
to the flexibility of a Curio kind,
but now they do.

just a quick tip on cloning,
that otherwise might
drive someone crazy:

say you got many “clones” of blocks etc. made
(or as YouMinds calls it “references”)

and you want now to delete 1 clone/reference,
then DON’T just delete it or you’ll immediately delete
ALL the clones including the source all-together :-))

(but which can be very useful to mass “trim” branches,
in the style of TheBrain gardening etc.)

But if you really want to just delete THIS ONE CLONE,
then you have to first click on its icon and select “UNLINK”
and then you can do with it what you want and delete it,
without effecting any of the others.

greetings

Wow, that is pretty impressive. I haven’t had a chance to play yet, but I’ve downloaded it!

I’m enjoying my trial of Curio, too, but have been a bit disappointed by the search function. Excellent in Curio’s own text/notes; not so good in PDFs (it finds text, but doesn’t list hits or highlight them, unlike e.g. Growly Notes, Yojimbo et al. Although the speed is very impressive – better than Growly Notes, which doesn’t appear to index stuff; on a par with Yojimbo, which is also pretty darn quick). I may wait a bit before investing!

Hmmm ... well, not sure I would use YouMind as an “alternative” to Curio either.  Horses for courses.  Just an opinion.
