You know what other CAD program is free? Autodesk Inventor. Or 3D StudioMax if you want something more "artsy". Yes, they are free for students, but aren't most of us here students?

For those of us who are not students anymore, there's another free as in free beer (not open source) 2D CAD solution :
Draftsight, by the creators of Solidworks: http://www.3ds.com/products/draftsight/overview/

It works very similar to AutoCAD.
