Thanks!

I like to use TikZ for LaTex because it looks really clean, you have the same fonts then in the text, you can even use it easily inside formulae etc. But you have to "program" the pictures using coordinates, so it has a bit of a learning curve.
Some examples of TikZ can be found here http://www.texample.net/tikz/examples/area/mathematics/
I use xfig on linux.
I don't use it myself (what I use isn't inexpensive), but my students seem to like Ipe.
I use Graphics in Mathematica, or xypic package for LaTeX.
