I spent a few hours with the former and it seems to have possiblites. I was using the windows version which is not as full featured afaikt. I couldn't do a conversion to dxf to take over to autocad.

I tried to build source on a fedora box but it failed. Decided to do the yum update thing and try again. 998MB of update over a 384K dsl. It will be tomorrow before I get to try building tomorrow. :(

So anyone using it? Managed to build on Fedora? I see they offer a debian package but I don't want to switch linuxes atm.
