XMind is a desktop software and also a cross-platform software package. At present, it can work on most main operating systems, like Windows* XP and later, Mac OS X 10.6.8 and later, and Linux**. More important, XMind has the exactly same performance and usage on these operating systems.
XMind also offers a totally green package, XMind Portable, which is a zip file. After unzipping it to a clear folder, you can directly launch XMind from this folder on Windows and Linux. You can even place this folder in the U-disk or mobile hard disk and run XMind from it. Very Simple!
** Linux users should meet below requirements,
- Some features need lame(http://lame.sourceforge.net/).
- Only Sun JRE/OpenJDK/IBM JRE/BEA JRockit are supported. Don't use unsupported JVM.
