Question cad programs

what's a good cad program that works with Linux?
Is it possible to do any cad drawings on Linux?
I ve given up trying to run auto cad on Linux no matter how i try it just wont work properly and crashes and I lose what I have done.
Are there any other options apart from QCAD?

You can check the software coming with this (old) distribution: .

There is also KiCad, but it is more for EDA than CAD. Other I know of are QCADdesigner and FreeCAD
