Something similar to Concept Draw under windows. Creating network, software, project architecture diagrams, flow charts, mind maps...

All this for Snow Leopard.

OmniGraffle should work for this. Excerpt:

Need a diagram, process chart, quick page-layout, website wireframe or graphic design? OmniGraffle can help you make eye-popping graphic documents quickly by keeping lines connected to shapes even when they're moved, providing powerful styling tools, importing and exporting Microsoft Visio files, and magically organizing diagrams with just one click. Whether you need a quick sketch or an epic technical figure, OmniGraffle keeps it gorgeously understandable.

There is Dia also for Snow Leopard.
Also at Stackoverflow, Diagram tool for Mac OS X -- refers Gliffy.
But, it does not appear to be free anymore (but you did not ask for freeware).

I know Dia for long time.. Would not consider it as professional diagraming SW... But thanks for the comment! –  Pablo Jun 17 '10 at 13:07

I'm guessing you need free or cheap software, or you'd be using the Mac version of Concept Draw?

OpenOffice / NeoOffice include a drawing tool.

Astah (formerly Jude) does run unofficially on OSX and has a free community edition.

It is based on Java/Eclipse, so getting it to run is fairly easy.

It is a good tool for UML, software and network architecture diagramming, but not as powerful as Visio or OmniGraffle.

Professional (paid) version has all of the features you are requesting: http://astah.change-vision.com/en/product/astah-professional.html

Mac OSX Support: http://astah.change-vision.com/en/faq/setup-faq/can-i-use-astah-on-linux-or-macos.html

Check evoluspencil at google code.

The Pencil Project's unique mission is to build a free and opensource tool for making diagrams and GUI prototyping that everyone can use.

Pencil will always be free as it is released under the GPL version 2 and
is available for virtually all platforms that Firefox 3 can run.

You could try xmind.

thanks, however, it's solely mind-mapping software... looking for something more to build complex diagrams. –  Pablo Jun 17 '10 at 13:05
