I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Gnome Dia yet. It's a fine program
and I'm using it for all my vector diagrams since years. In my opinion
there are only a few things really missing from it:

      * Rotation like rotating text or rotating objects. There ain't
        even a 90° rotation.
      * Gradient fills
      * More developer care. Development activity seems to be quite low
        recently. But fortunately you can use python for scripting.

Besides that it's very usable and works very well for me.

Just noticed that postscript export is not as obvious as it might be,
though. You can't export a postscript file but need print to it.

Yours sincerely,
Dennis Schulmeister
