Apart from MS Visio and smartdraw, which are other UML diagrams software that could be consider as an alternative to both mentioned?

It doesn't matter whether it is freeware or paid

Thanks!

I have been very happy with yEd Graph Editor as an alternative to Visio. It is available free of charge.

+1 It has its quirks but I've done all my network diagrams with it. –  Linker3000 Jun 8 '11 at 12:57

I've been using Violet UML which is simply a .jar file to generate rather simple UML diagrams. You should give it a try.

I use Creately to draw UML diagrams. It supports all the major UML diagrams types, have plenty of templates to get started quickly and has real-time collaboration to work with others. It has a public plan so you can always try it out and decide whether it suites your needs.

If you're looking to share the UML with other people so they can work on it, http://www.gliffy.com/ might be a solution.

We use Rational Rose, heavyweight, not cheap in price or learning curve. Suitable for enterprise use.

I would have suggested Kivio, but seems not ready for prime time.
