Hey Monique,

As an ambi-OS user, I made the switch from Visio to Omnigraffle rather
seamlessly. Here are some things I found:

1) Visio files can be embedded into Office docs as objects. Omnigraffle
docs cannot. I found that exporting the Omnigraffle as a PDF and
linking/embedding that into the Mac:Word document worked the best.
2) Visio provides a powerful programming language for dynamic graphics and
data visualization.
3) Omnigraffle objects are easier to manipulate than Visio. If you know how
to do things in Visio, Omnigraffle is a piece of cake.

-Tony
