Just checked and I've recommended a Mac/MSWin only application!

When I looked at Sketchup around a year ago it was Mac/MSWin
with a Linux version Real Soon Now. According to the current
system requirements page for Sketchup, it's still Mac / MSwin
only :-( unless you've willing to use WINE.

How about Wings 3D? It is available for Linux, with source
code. Not as many features as Blender, but doesn't have the
horrible^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H unusual UI or vertical learning
curve either.
