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.

Again where is the source for that?

some other CAD examples wich are on par or higher than
Autocad.

Cycas:

Arcad: http://www.lx-office.com/LX/products/architektur/arcad/index.html

Autocad would be a warm welcome but its nonsense to say that Linux lacks CAD applications or support.
