QCAD Comments

I recommend QCAD as an AutoCAD replacement

Positive Comment by atbarajas
about QCAD and Autodesk AutoCAD Jun 2011

Cannot beat this product for the price. Easy to use and learn, and light weight.

I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an AutoCAD replacement, especially if you're using another operating system.
