"Finally a Good CAD Solution for Linux Users"
MEDUSA4 Personal is a fully featured advanced drafting system with smart editing and drafting power tools, basic 3D, parametrics, and even a Sheet Metal Design module. It supports Windows as well as six different Linux distributions (CentOS, Fedora, Mandriva, RedHat, SuSE and Ubuntu) .
Dr. Eduardo N. Hering, who works at the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas (Brazilian Centre for Research in Physics) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is one of many Linux users in 109 countries who have downloaded MEDUSA4 Personal for home use. He recently wrote, "I'd like to congratulate your company for the excellent product you have developed. Even my brother, who uses one of the world's best known CAD products on Windows, is considering migrating to linux after browsing your product. Before MEDUSA4 there were no really good CAD solutions available for linux users."
"Our developers really appreciate the positive feedback from MEDUSA4 Personal users," says Michael Schroer, the company's Managing Director, "Windows or Linux, there are clearly a lot of hobby engineers out there who are keen to use a professional-grade drafting system. In the first three months of 2009 we have once again managed to nearly double the download figures achieved during the same period last year. "
The percentage of Linux users among the MEDUSA4 Personal audience varies significantly from country to country, and totals approximately 35%. While in Germany, the top download location, about 13% of users work with Linux, in Italy, the second largest download group, Linux users outnumber Windows users by nearly three to one.
To run MEDUSA4 Personal, users register to receive their free 6-month license by e-mail. This can easily be renewed via the CAD Schroer Website, giving designers the opportunity to download the latest release. MEDUSA4 Personal is regularly updated in line with the professional MEDUSA4 software releases.
