Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visio

We use it for architectural diagrams for the most part (our org chart is also built in Visio). But primarily, we map customer networks and data center environments for a before and after view if they buy the solution we're proposing to them. It can be extremely detailed at times.

Being a seasoned Microsoft user, Visio is easy to learn and catch onto because it's similar to other MS apps that we're all so familiar with already. This makes it easy when you have to create highly complex and detailed work that would be a struggle on another platform.
It's very good for creating diagrams and charts that are very detailed and are subject to change. It's pretty much the only way that I can map a network with hundreds of devices and connections without really struggling. However, the artwork is definitely a bit rudimentary and doesn't have the high tech feel you'd like it to.
