[ANN] Tycho - A PIM under development


(Bennett, Patrick) #1

And why would something in Ruby be faster than Freemind (which I believe
is in Java) ? I love Ruby, but well, it is pretty slow.

I’ve looked at freemind, but not in great detail. My first impression
is that it is a little complex in terms of UI (and I’ve heard it’s
slow, though I don’t know).

Agreed. There’s no intrinsic reason a Ruby program should be faster.

It’s not a matter of language, but of features, algorithms, and
data structures. In this case, I’m particularly hoping that a simpler
UI and/or feature set will make a faster program.
