I'm quite familiar with LaTeX now (ie typesetting, text, using TOC,
labels etc) as well as typing lots of equations.

Now I want to draw circuit diagrams, timing diagrams, as well as
graphs, and graph paper.

I heard about MetaPost and PStricks, but it seems to me that these are
just to much to learn to do "draw" quickly. Same applies to some
packages I found around CTAN.

Just today I found JpicEdt, Java based application which does this.

But are there any other programs to do this or should I learn
PStricks/MetaPost (yak) or are there any better ways to do the
following statements:

1) Can I make a float figure which has grid/axis to fill in by hand
after a print it
2) Can I create a full page of customised graph paper
3) Can I draw on those axis graphs of math expressions
4) Can I add points (is black dot big letter A (or alphabetical
counter better) then (2,5) and label in it as well to reference from
5) Diagrams with symbols for electronic symbols you can think off with labelling
6) would be incredible to be able to actually draw on top ie smily
faces, text, LaTeX equations

+ clarifying points

Metafont and PStricks are back-ends that render the source files of
graphical information made using specialised commands (Y/N/not
really), and it can be embedded into Latex document, ie include
