    This is an excellent alternative to MS Visio, and it's free. It's very easy to use and to learn. One nice feature is that it supports LaTeX mathematical formulas, which I use since I am a math professor.

    Loving the clear, modern interface (suspiciously similar to Google Docs ;) ), and how intuitive it is to get started: no need to make sense of confusing menus and icons. Well done, recommending this open source tool from now on.
