    Check out this Equivalency chart:

    http://linuxshop.ru/linuxbegin/win-lin-soft-en/

    I would have looked it up, but the site is timing out atm.

    Maybe I should reiterate. I am looking for some software (like visio) I could use to draw network maps. I am working on a proposal for work and I want to add linux files servers integrated with Windows database servers and I need to compare license issues and I wanted to show a network map of my idea. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Can you think of a different name for that type of program? Like is it a flow chart program? Here's a couple of places to look

    I think I know what you're talking about, and I've seen programs like that, I just can't remember what I used as a search term

    All I know of is Visio for Microsoft. Visio calls itself technical diagramming software. So is there any technical diagraming software for linux?

    not sure about opening visio diagrams, but there is kivio, the default seems to be kivio files and xml files.

    I don't need to open visio files I need to write diagrams in a program that is like visio. We don't have visio and I have this one program to write and can't justify the price of the software plus licenses for something I am going to use once.

    Talion,
    Kivio is perfect and is already on my slackware. That is great thanks for the suggestion.

    kivio should do it, has a fair amount of stencils, basic through UML,
    I found it under KDE/koffice
