You can still get MacLux Pro online at their site... and I've been using it on my MacBook Pro 17 for almost a year now... They are starting the development of a new program call LXFree... Though it is beta right now, it has good possibilities. Like Chris said... Vectorworks is just about top dog in the industry for us Mac folks...
