I'll give VMware workstation a try, I forgot they also had a Linux version. Good to know about KVM and Xen having that option too. Willing to sacrifice a video card slot for that if I do find myself needing it more.
Audocad was a bad example given I had not tried it, just assumed if sketchup did not work, that would not work either, but I just tried it for fun and it actually DOES work, so that's good. I can always give up Sketchup and just stick to AutoCAD. I don't really use CAD that often but it is useful when planing a home project or something.
That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10:9-10
