CAD on Linux

Anticipation of the benefits of perl6 prompts me to speculate on the future of CAD on linux.

I agree with you that this is a "better-than-most CAD format" but disagree on the "just another" part.

With some nurturing, this project that now discusses the format of open source CAD objects may actually become the next competitor to now closed-source and highly commercial software in a similar fashion to the GIMP and Mozilla (Firefox.) Considerable interest is growing for CAD on Linux and I predict the outcome to be impressive.

Open Discussion

Bruno has stated that the discussion has resolved to use YAML for the internal file format. He is now planning the extension of Draft to include revisions now being discussed at the cad-linux-dev list. In classic open source style, he asks openly for any assistance interested persons may provide. You can view the most recent discussion here.
