"Dia is specifically billed as a "diagram editor", which is of course where the name comes from. Though I've never used Visio, I have heard Dia compared to it. The main features of Dia are a deeply-integrate system of symbol libraries and a small set of primitive graphics tools which provide text, boxes, ellipses, polylines, and bezier curves. In principle, you can create vector graphics "from scratch" in Dia, but the interface favors using the built-in symbols and simply connecting them using "zig-zag lines" (or "connectors").
