I have used xfig and qcad. Qcad is definitely more complicated to use,
it is handled similarly to autocad, but, like autocad, it allows
to do precise 2D drawings. Basically qcad is a simplified 2D autocad.
I don't think, at least i am not able to do similar precise things with
xfig, which, on the other hand is convenient to insert schematic drawings
into Latex stuff. Since both are available for free, the OP can try both
and see what he prefers for his job.
