Jreepad is an open-source re-working of Treepad Lite in Java created by Dan Stowell. Jreepad is freeware.

JReePad comes in two editions: (1) a dedicated MAC OS X edition, and (2) a Java edition which runs on any operating system, but needs to have a Java virtual machine installed.

(2) Download Jreepad as a Java .JAR file (platform-independent, but needs a Java Virtual Machine installed)

Running TreePad
for Windows on MAC/Intel

You might be surprised to learn that you can run any edition of TreePad (for Windows) on a MAC/Intel computer. For this you need to install one of the third-party products listed below:

Wine for MAC OS X We expect that Wine for MAC OS X will be able to run TreePad.

VMWare Using this solid emulator you should be able to run all current TreePad Windows versions on MAC/Intel, including the Enterprise Editions. Please try this out first before purchasing VMWare for this purpose.

Virtualbox Freeware, open-source virtual Machine for Windows, Linux, MAC. It supports a large number of guest operating systems including but not limited to Windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4 and 2.6), and OpenBSD.
Runs all TreePad editions on MAC including TreePad X Enterprise.

Parallels Relatively low-cost emulator for MAC/Intel. TreePad Lite, TreePad PLUS, TreePad SAFE and TreePad Business Edition all run on Parallels. Currently we have no information on whether TreePad X Enterprise runs on Parallels as well, but we think that this is likely.
