Default Windows Applications under Linux

I am a recently retired mechanical engineer who used AutoCAD almost exclusively at work. Recently I started using UBUNTO because of my dislike of Windows both technically and morally. I still require a CAD program for use at home and AutoCAD is far to costly and complicated.
I have tried a number of CAD programs, both native to Linux and windows and have found the best by far to be A9 CAD ( but it only runs under windows. I get frustrated having to reboot just to use this program. I searched the web and found one suggestion using Wine. I followed the instructions as best I could but was unsucessful.
Does anyone have any suggestions for running this program under Linux.
If so could you help me bearing in mind I am new to LINUX and know hardly anything.
Thanks in advance,
Bob Heaps
