DraftSight - Free CAD software, review and tour

I must admit I'm wading uncharted waters here. The fact I have some street credit with 3D design and rendering does not make me an expert on computer-aided design. Still, I probably have a decent sense of understanding how 2D/3D plans and draft should work.

Hence, I was asked by one of my readers, Pedro, to review DraftSight, a free, professional grade CAD software. Some may call this program an AutoCAD alternative, what GIMP is unto Photoshop, only in the space of drafting and design. Well, let's see how it works. Tested on Lucid Lynx, Ubuntu that is.
