is there an Open office equivalent to Visio 2000

The loss of my access to a PC with Visio and Visio 2000 on it has left
me with .vsd files that I cannot work on, and its beginning to get a bit
of a problem.

a) is there an open source program that can open these files, and

b) can I use it to work with the files for future drawings.

I assume you use Windows. I did not see that Draw could open vsd files.
You might check Dia (https://live.gnome.org/Dia), which has a Windows
version. Dia can open the newer Visio files but I am uncertain of the
older ones.

I think I have used Dia on some old[er] Visio files that I had, but I do
not remember which Visio version they were made from.

I know that the 3.5.x line is "advertised" in the "Release info" section
to be able to open Visio files.  So if you try 3.5.3 and Dia, one should
be able to open your Visio files.

Soon, hopefully, LO will open Publisher files and then with Visio, LO
will be able to open a file format from all of MS Office "modules"
instead of just the "normal" business one like word processing,
spreadsheet, and presentations.  I saw something about work on a
Publisher importing filter being worked on by someone/somewhere.

Visio import is now possible in LibreOffice 3.5. There is a mention at
the top of the page and also 2/3 down that page with screenshots.

Cheers,

Marc

Hi :)
Oh, weird.  I thought they were keen on attracting developers and making it easier for talented people to write things for their platforms?

Also, you will have to pay for the options to play a DVD or other
related media files, according to an article last month.

Win8 should be a dead-on-arrival OS.  You have to pay for most of the
things you normally get for free with WinXP/Vista/Win7.

I really do not want my desktop to look like a tablet, the way MS
wants.  They want people to be able to use the exactly same desktop
look/feel for both their tablet, laptop, and desktop.  They make it hard
to figure out how to use it, and it looks worse than Unity does.  There
is an article comparing Ubuntu 12.04/Unity and Win8.

So you really do not want to buy into Win8.
