yEd free Visio replacement

While looking for a free MS Visio alternative, I stumbled on yED Graph Editor by yWorks.

This program is Java-based and you can either download an installer or launch it from the yWorks webpage. I found that the Launch option uses yed.jnlp that opens yed.Jar. For my scenario I just wanted to place the jar file on the desktop of specific users to give them access. I used this link: http://www.yworks.com/products/yed/demo/yed.jar to download the required jar file.
