Dia: A Strong Open Source Answer to Microsoft's Visio

I was just reading through an interesting post from Mike Kavis, in which he describes his efforts to use open source software as a way to avoid Microsoft's products altogether. His post is a follow-up to another one he wrote about his, er, social experiment. Kavis became Microsoft-free by using products such as Thunderbird for e-mail, OpenOffice for productivity apps, and Firefox for browsing. After chucking Microsoft Office, though, Kavis laments that "there is no answer for Visio." I beg to differ. There is actually a truly fantastic free, open source alternative to Microsoft's visualization and diagramming tool: Dia. Take a look at it here.

Exporting a Free Mind File into .txt or .doc?

Is there anyway to export the inputs and data in a freemind file into a text file and (IDEALLY) keeping the directory structure?

Tree structure in FreeMind?

Some Mind mapping tools let you generate a tree-structure document - a bulleted/indented list, basically, with a basic hierarchy. Any idea how I can get this to work in FreeMind?
