One question RE: QCad. Where did you see that it was updated in April 2010? I just looked at RibbonSoft's website, and the downloads section still shows v2.2.2 dating from Sept. 2008 if I remember correctly.

[You could be right; I got the date from the most recent entry on the site. - Ed.]


You missed one in your list.
NX from Siemens PLM Software runs on Windows, Linux and MacOS X.


Good news.
CAD on Linux is really great !!

Also ARCAD a very powerfull 2d/3d/visualisation architectural CAD is missing.

QCAD 3 will be release at Q3 2010 with support for dwg 2.5 to 2010 as Ribbonsoft said at QCAD forum

Thanks for the info. DWG support would be a first. Looks like I need to monitor that forum.

I'd love to see NX running on Linux with my own eyes. Or a good review. I've combed the net and haven't found much info, a couple screenshots but not much else. I wonder if I'd be able to get a demo DVD if I contacted the local VAR! Even though I'd have no intention of buying it (let's say it's out of my price bracket!)
