I'm enthusiastic with what I've played with - I've given a brief demo of the concepts and the program to my senior college students who seemed interested; I'm about to give a demo to our school staff, and I intend to install at least one lab's worth of it to put it through its paces in a class context. (And it's an Australian piece of software, but who'd be parochial!)
In short - I think it looks good, but I haven't really pressed it into service. (And it appears simple to use, unlike the free/open source platforms - of which there are many - see the critical thinking skills wiki page here.)
Nice to read your comments. If you are interested I like to know what you think of the usefulness of Rationale - argument mapping software. It seems to me to provide a great framework for visualising argument and help develop critical thinking skills (http://www.classroom20wiki.com/CriticalThinkingSkills).
