Linux system

Hi,
I am trying to use Linux as my primary operating system including CAD and 3D
design.
Is there anyone out there doing that? What kind of CAD software should I
consider using for Linux and 3d modelling?
Any suggestions are welcom. Or we can turn this topic as a forum in this
News group.

Oh, we can talk about this topic all we want here, it just doesn't
look good for getting a serious cad package for Linux for a while.
I hear that Intellicad is working on one, and that the OpenDWG
alliance has a port of their *stuff* for Linux, but I don't think
there is a package from the big CADD players that will run on Linux
yet.

I'm ready to give it a go when they are.

Wouldn't it make more sense to chose your CAD and 3D design package to be
most suitable for your needs and then use whichever OS it's running on? When
you produce design on 3D CADD, 95 % of time you are concerned about 3D
design procedure, not about how OS communicates with the application or how
file system, network, drivers etc. are working.

To me logic of choosing CAD system to suit the favorite OS is similar to the
logic of buying $3000 suit to match pair of favorite, perhaps odd color
socks. Expect being somewhat limited in choices (and don't expect to have
easy communication with the rest of the CADD world :smileywink:
