I'll be honest in that I personally find QCad to be invaluable for 2D
drafting. I am not sure exactly how you are planning on using the vector
drawing program is part of the problem. In the past I have also used
Inkscape for web design, and OpenOffice Draw for some things as well. I,
like others, am curious how QCad and Inkscape fail these basic requirements
