    Yep, works fairly well to view. Can also import some versions of DWG with MS Visio.

    Soundguy,

    There's a free program out there called 'Draftsight' - link below. It's free, and there's a build version for Linux, Mac & Windoze. Not open source, but it is free, and gives you the ability to create, manipulate existing and print 2D drawings. I have used it quite a bit on a Linux OS and think it works well. Much more capability than the viewer, if you're interested.

    TrueView from Autodesk seems to work most place I've tried it.
