      diagrams.net vs Dia opinions
      Most users think diagrams.net is a great alternative to Dia.
      Kholdfire Draw.io is a decent alternative, but is too different. Mainly the problem is that Dia is an application program for Windows, while draw.io is a mere Web app. I know Web apps are popular these days, but they're not the same as actual applications, and personally I don't like how many companies seem to be attempting to make all programs Web apps or "online" "programs".

      Draw.io is very usable, with a sleek interface, tons of stencils/shapes, and the ability to export to various file formats. I have used for home and work projects and have been pleased with the results. I would even go as far as saying it's more useful than MS Visio if your requirements aren't too technical.

      yEd Graph Editor vs Dia opinions
      Most users think yEd Graph Editor is a great alternative to Dia.
      Lacika yEd has pretty much all features as Dia and a lot more! It has a bit steep learning curve and sometimes a bit strange UI, but once you learn it you can do almost any diagram in it. It can even reorganize it automatically, if it gets messy!

      dimlakgorkehgz Line links not attached to objects. Better for drawing than diagramming though it is still possible.

      PlantUML vs Dia opinions
      This alternative is disputed. PlantUML is still a legitimate alternative to Dia, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Not a GUI diagramming tool. By this logic graphviz is an alternative to Dia.
