    For Visio, try Inkscape. I used to use Visio regularly and thought it was the one thing I'd need to keep windows for. I now use Inkscape instead for professional quality diagrams though and they're...

    What happened when you did the Ubuntu installation? Did it complete but then not give you the option to boot Vista? Or did the installation fail?
