about Autodesk AutoCAD Jun 2011

Free alternatives to AutoCAD you can find on (1 - in english) and (2 - in german).
Free alternatives, which can read and store dwg- and dxf-files are DoubleCAD XT, LiteCAD, A9CAD, pCon.planner6 (6 languages). DoubleCAD XT (is very similar to AutoCAD). Why it is by far better than AutoCAD LT 2010, you see in the "Comparison AutoCAD LT & DoubleCAD XT Pro 2.0": (3)
