Much of the enterprise market seems wedded to Visio as their network
graphics tool, which locks them into Windows. Personally, I hate both
little pictures of equipment and Cisco hockey-puck icons; I much prefer
things like rectangles saying "7507 STL-1" or "M160 NYC-3".
Assuming you use *NIX platforms (including BSD under Mac OS X), what are
your preferred tools for network drawings, both for internal and
external use? I'd hate to be driven to Windows only because I need Visio.
I personally use Dia, and it seems fine in both OS types, and exports
various types of files that [OOo/MS-office] can deal with easily.
You can download shapes for a variety of presenters/office/visio/etc
from the cisco website (as well as others).
