Hey, can anyone recommend a downloadable desktop thesaurus?

I've had Mobysaurus recommended in the past but I wasn't that impressed with it... Now I'm looking at something called SpellExpress (spellchecker, thesaurus and dictionary) but it's designed for business-types and letter-writers and I wonder if it might be somewhat limited...

Has anyone used this, or any other electronic thesaurus that they recommend??

I like VisualThesaurus because of the innovative interface. They have both an online subscription as well as desktop version. Check out their website (http://www.visualthesaurus.com).

I use the free version of WordWeb: http://wordweb.info/

When I find my MS Word Thesaurus not enough, I either go to MW or Thesaurus.com or Wiktionary - why load up your hard drive when there's so much free stuff online?

I also use WordWeb. Handy little icon sits in my systray for easy access. I wouldn't be without it. No writer should.
