A little late on this thread.  I go through this discussion every 3-4 
months... as at my work we are constantly writing tech proposals, papers 
and presentations and need input from various people (lots on Unix, OSX 
and some on windows).  We always end up settling for OOLibre Draw.  Then 
we can output to eps or pdf for papers, and insert into OOImpress or ppt 
(or other) for presentations.  It mostly works though has some quirks in 
the GUI and it is near impossible to automate anything (like making all 
the connection lines thicker).  But there are some niceities like being 
able to create groups (which you can enter to modify later) and getting 
little arrows to connect to particular spots on other objects.  And all 
sorts of color gradients etc.  We usually make a single .odg at a high 
enough resolution which we rescale for different formats, even upscale 
for some large posters we have made for conferences.
