Novell and Ximian Novell plans to release a beta for its Linux Desktop 10 including new features offering better interoperability with Microsoft Office and Open Office, said Ted Haeger, Novell's director of user communities, at the Southern California Linux Expo. The beta, tentatively scheduled for release next month, will include a new feature, dubbed Xgl. Haeger said Xgl will allow users to jump between screens and multiple desktops. Targeted to CAD software users, Xgl has a practical side that allows users to have better window- and file-sharing capabilities.

Cad software for Linux:
(and please look deeper into things before making stupid comments)

To name a few prof. applikcations..
- Varicad
- Microstation
- Synergy

There are also lot of free and open CAD/CAM programs.

As for lack of knowledge, go and read up about what applications are missing in terms of Linux support and you'll find CAD in general, and particularly AutoCAD, high on the list in terms of the features some would miss.

Goodness knows how XGL would improve the above applications anyway.

Looks like you yourself a full of crap to, i did not bother to read the rest of your statements...

Probably because you don't want to look.
