Umbrello UML Modeller

Well, this is certainly 10^6 miles from Rational Rose, but given that it costs 2k less I can't complain. Umbrello's strong point is the modeler itself which is very Rose like, looks good, and behaves reasonably well. However, it's not very feature rich and I've noticed some oddness in the way in the way certain UML components are interpreted. For instance, the 'aggregation' component seems to appear "backwards" by default, with the diamond pointing to the "part". Therefore, you're forced to click 'from' the part 'to' the whole which I find unatural. Most UML tools do this the opposite way. Also I don't see any way of adding/selecting stereotypes. Hopefully, this tool will mature. - Jan 10 2004

Works great after some settings tweaking. Some defaults I thought were a bit strange. For instance, if you enable looping, it tries to loop through the entire playlist rather than the current clip. This is bad if you use it mainly for browsing p0rn ;-), since temp files end up in the playlist. However, that behavior can be changed in the settings, then it's fine. - Jan 10 2004
