In a press release issued today by Bricsys, the company has announced the release of Bricscad V10 for Linux. The product has been in beta for quite some time and I have been playing around with it. Bricsys claims that Bricscad is “the first .dwg based CAD platform for the Linux Operating System“. According to the press release:
“The Linux community so far had no access to .dwg based CAD, commonly accepted as the standard CAD file format. With Bricscad V10 for Linux that problem is solved and people don’t have to stick with the Windows OS just because they need .dwg based CAD.
Initially Bricscad will support three Linux flavors: Fedora 12 or higher, OpenSuse 11.1 or higher and Ubuntu 9.10 or higher. The English version of Bricscad V10 for Linux is available in the Bricsys e-store. The other 15 language versions will be available within days.”
I guess Bricsys didn’t want Graebert to be able to claim that they were the first on Linux as well as Mac.
