    AutoCAD for Fedora Core 2 (Linux)


    I have been using AutoDesk AutoCAD under Windows 2000 and XP for a little while now and everything else on my SuSE box. Just recently, I have switched EVERYTHING to Fedora Core 2. I am not curious to see if anyone knows a CAD program that will run on Fedora (or any version of Linux) that is most like AutoDesk (or any high-grade AutoCAD program).

    Thanks in advance.

    You'll need to Google for these because I don't feel like it.
    QCAD, Varicad, Cycas, LinuxCAD, CAM Expert, SISCAD-P, ME-10, CAD-DA, Microstation, Varimetrix.
    For the full AutoCAD experience you'll likely need to run AutoCAD.

    That won't happen on Linux until you AutoCAD get dead in the middle of AutoDesks back and demand it.

    However, With the tools listed above, individually or in some combination, you should be able to satisfy most if not all your CAD needs.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    Have a look at GraphiteOne, which claims to be very much like AutoCAD, such that an AutoCAD user can transition with little difficulty. It's free, which is a BIG plus over AutoCAD.
