Light, free, simple and many features. Grid snapping can be upgraded thought.

Dia on Linux - shines.

I was able to use it to create all sorts of logic diagrams - for programming and for organization. It is also capable to unite any elements and group and supports layering. Perfect software!

I successfully made some diagrams with Dia but, as another user said, its interface is really clunky. Now I'm trying yED.

Like that software. It's a bit unhandy sometimes but in the end maybe the best libre software there is for that purpose.

Dia has somewhat stagnated in recent years. For a long time it was the only real open source option other than turning to Inkscape and doing everything from scratch. These days I'd recommend you try Pencil instead because it has a much nicer UI and arguably better features.
