I'm a discrete mathematician. My main research interests are discrete optimization and scheduling in specific. I've been using LaTeX on and off since 2007, mostly for homework assignments. I have really gotten into it while writing my thesis though. Scheduling problems call for quite a lot of diagrams, so my main focus and interest within LaTeX is TikZ.

answered Are probabilities proportional to the distance traveled in a random walk? What if the initial position is a bit biased?

Allright, then the best solution I can come up with is an on-line LaTeX editor. There are dozens, this one is probably the simplest though: Latex previewer by Troy Henderson. Add the tikz package, enter the code for your diagram and it will generate a PNG or SVG for you. Probably not ideal for you, but I seriously doubt there are any purpose built editors out there. So if nobody comes up with a better solution this will at least help you to avoid compiling, messing with paths and installing packages.

@3Sphere: It's still not entirely clear to me what you are looking for exactly then. Do you want a WYSIWYG editor? Apparently compilation is off the table, but you don't want something like power point without the supporting infrastructure, because that's basically what Dia is (at least for the diagram creating part that is important to you here).
