Also, if you need to draw just some flowcharts, callouts and simple diagrams
you can try VISIO 2000.

I am not sure of other version of VISIO. but 2000 supports UML base
diagrams. There is a seperate diagram type call UML in VISIO 2000.

I've been using Visio continuously since it came out. I use it to diagram flowcharts, data flow diagrams, enterprise charts, network hierarchies, process flows, all kinds of stuff. I've been doing just fine upgrading at the entry level until now.

At my current gig, we use UML diagrams extensively. On the Microsoft site, they seem to be claiming that the Enterprise Edition can -- what?? -- extract UML from Rational Rose? Generate Java skeletons from UML? And how does this compare to what the Technical and/or Professional Versions will do with UML if anything? The upgrade price on this version is $669 vs. $229 for the Professional Version.

Can anyone give me a description of their real-life experiences with Visio that might shine a light on whether I really need to spend the extra $440 to upgrade all the way to the Enterprise Edition? Feel free to email me directly if it will help you to be more outspoken with your cost-benefit analysis. I'll compile responses for the group if anyone is interested.
