21 Grant,
22 You don't want to go back to the windows app, or you don't want to
23 go back to running Windows as a platform?
25 I'm using a few old windows apps where there is no good OS
26 alternative within a vmware/Win XP setup. This works fine for me for
27 the maybe 60 minutes a week I need to use these things.
29 I looked for the same sort of floor planning software a few years
30 ago. I found nothing at that time.
32 Good luck,
33 Mark
