Does anyone know of a Linux based CAD package, preferably open source,
good for architectural drawings and that can open .dwg Autocad native
drawings?  Maybe something operable with Wine?

I checked out LinuxCad and it isn't quite there.  I also looked at
Varicad, which is more suitable for mechanical engineers.

This is the ONLY thing keeping my firm from a total switch to open
source, GNU/Linux.
