    Here's the thing with windows 8 tablets - it's a killer thing for anyone dealing with paper. Having an active digitizer along with MS OneNote is a blessing. The problem is - OneNote does not mindmap, and there really is a place for a decent, touch and ink friendly app on the market (could be desktop, not neceserrily metro, although minimalistic, or at least clean UI is nice).

    Here's how it looks from my perespective. I'm a physics student. I've been using a windows 8 tablet (hybrid actually) with a pen for the past two months. I have not written a single page of paper since then, and I love it. From now on I know I will not ever come back to paper again and all my future computers will be like this - touch and pen hybrids with keyboard docking stations. This thing is just too good. I love OneNote. But I need mindmapping. I need mindmapping with traditional keyboard shortcut support, so I can create mindmaps fast when my tablet is docked. I need it with touch support, so I can use it while on the go, when touch-based navigation is very pleasant and natural. And MOST importantly, I need it with ink support. I want to write equations, with tiny indices. Use whatever symbols I like. Physics, mathematics, you name it.

    And lastly I need it to be somehow battery friendly, since these days, computing is mobile and I need my battery to last all day.

    The trend is, that in a perespetive of a few years, tablets will sell. And windows hybrids will be a large part of them. Windows 8 on a tablet is just a dream of a professional. It has incredible usability. And the ink totally rocks. Whoever has ever dreamed of paperless life - this is it. I love the fact that I can carry a ton of papers in my bag and not even feel it, and I've got all the goodness of the whole internet there, also. And I can write on documents, pdfs, word, excel, whatever, edit them on the go with touch-friendly Office 2013. I just need mindmapping. Ink-friendly, a little bit social (group edition - students and teams in companies know how to use such features), and MS office integrated (truth is - most people use MS Office).

    Think about this - we live in the XXI century and we're using dead trees to write. Also, it just somehow happens that a very large percentage of people who get to play with windows tablet PCs, especially the new windows 8 based devices, and especially people who could be described somehow as "professionals", those who know what they need mindmapping for - which is your market - they fall madly in love with digital ink. I'd say digital ink and mindmapping is a match made in heaven.

    I've played with PersonalBrain/TheBrain in the past, and I was hugely impressed. The shear idea of this software, it has incredible potential. It's more of a 3d network than a flat 2d mindmap, and it's lightyears ahead of competition with this basic difference in design.

    And I'd love to use it with ink.
