Free 2D cad program for Linux

A while back there was a thread that included questions about CAD for Linux. This just hit my email inbasket.

<snip> As you may know, DraftSight is built on Graebert’s ARES platform. 8 months after Dassault launched DraftSight for Windows and 5 months after Graebert released their own version of ARES Commander for Linux, Dassault has launched DraftSight for Linux. There’s no word on all the Linux version which are supported, but if it lines up with what is offered by Greabert for ARES Linux it will look something like this…
* supports 32-bit versions of Ubuntu® 9.10 Gnome, Fedora® 11 Gnome, Suse® 11.2 Gnome, Mandriva® 2010 Gnome and KDE, or higher versions. * does not support the specific Windows Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) and the export of Enhanced Windows Metafile (EMF) images. * supports application development through Lisp, C/C++, and the DRX API. Windows specific technologies like VSTA, ActiveX, and COM. LISP encryption are not supported. <snip>
