    Visio replacements

    Okay, I'm using Visio 2003 for a huge network diagram I have to do for school. I'd use Visio, but I don't have Crossover Office 5. Student life sucks. Is dia up to this task? What do you guys use?

    When I was taking NetworkLab (cisco IOS based configuration) and LAN/WAN, I used Dia to do all the diagrams.

    I'd say it's not as complete as visio but for networking stuff, it has much more nicer pre-drawn graphics than visio since visio is much more general oriented.

    I've also seen some very nice network diagrams using dia so you won't be disappointed (I think).

    YMMV.

    I use Dia for a Linux Visio drop in replacement. I loved doing it while at school. I couldn't stand Visio though. Crappy interface and graphics. Dia was more intelligent and pretty.
