Visio alternative for Linux

We really know that Visio for Linux will never be a reality, and so all we have right now is some tools, that from usability point of view or features, are limited: DIA and Kivio 1.6

The new version of Kivio, in the foreseen future on the Calligra suite, is being worked on, and might be a reality, but with unknown stencils/icons.

I’m not the only one, that for work reasons, has this need, as this post on Reddit shows: http://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/ewhy5/alternatives_to_dia/

There are here great alternatives, some free, some limited, that can be used to make at least good looking diagrams without resorting to a virtual machine running Windows and Visio:

1) http://www.gliffy.com

2) http://www.lucidchart.com

3) http://www.mxgraph.com/

  1. I prefer using Creately over the ones mentioned in your list. I have used Gliffy and Lucidchart and Lucidchart does offer more like real-time collaboration compared to Gliffy. But for usability alone I would prefer Creately.
