I am a landscape architect, used to working in firms with AutoCAD. I have recently started my own business from home and am looking for a simple CAD package that won't cost me the earth! I have tried Briscad too and I liked that but it does not support Linux, which I am considering as well. I like the idea of supporting an alternative CAD company and I am particularly interested in the open source movement and for that reason would prefer to support QCAD.
I have downloaded the professional version of QCAD but have been having trouble using it. Are there any posts or web pages about the differences in order to make the switch easier? I am used to working from the command line and find all the buttons a bit confusing. The help files are aimed at the complete beginner and are button focused.
