Talking Visio Alternative

Any one know of a Linux program that does the same as M$ Visio?

I work as a network consultant and need something to draw up network diagrams and plans for customers and i really wanted to start using Linux as my main OS, if i can find this i will be able to almost remove windows from my system altogether.

Dia is another Visio replacement

Dia is a GNOME app that "is designed to be much like the commercial Windows program 'Visio.'"
