Hive Five: Five Best Mind Mapping Apps

Hive Five: Five Best Mind Mapping Apps
Are there any programs out there that allow a person to create a series of steps to accomplish a task type thing? Example: 8 steps to bake cookies. Mix dry ingredients, melt butter in bowl, add dry ingredients, mix at low speed, poor into pan, bake at 325 for 30 minutes, cut brownies, eat and enjoy. But let's say at the 2nd step, to melt the butter, you had to use an acetylene torch (it's really tough butter). Operating a torch isn't something most people have experience with so there are more detailed instructions below, for those who need them. I tried FreeMind and XMind and while you could sorta force it to do something like that, it would be better if it was a series of collapsible steps, rather than a mind map where everything had to hover around the middle. And, like the other poster who wanted it, I'd like to be able to easily link in another thought anywhere in the map. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The ship consists of a forward sensor module, crew module, a variable number of fuel modules and a reactor and propulsion module. The name "Cerberus" denotes both the multi-mission capability of the spacecraft, as well as the physical resemblance of the mythical three headed dog formed by the forward radome, railgun and forward operations module protruding forward from the crew section. The forward sensor module consists of a suite of extremely powerful digitally scanned array radar apertures housed in a ballistic-protective aeroshell, as well as housing various multi-spectrum optical trackers.

Archive » Tough questions for your things I like to think of myself as a person who is unattached to physical objects. Truth be told, however, this might not necessarily be the case.

Each object exists in my space for a reason, and a chunk of time, planning, and research was dedicated to its acquisition, and there are further evaluations to let it stay.
