Autocad is the most common, but is also much complained about because of the many shortcomings it has for architects. Those who use it are forced to use PC/Windows because so far, Autodesk has shown no interest in writing Autocad for the Mac.

ArchiCAD is described as marvellous and delightful be everyone who has used it, but I've never tried it myself. It is cross-platform PC/Mac.

Microstation is almost as widely used as Autocad and is considered more "architect-friendly"

Vectorworks is increasingly popular for the small and medium size practice. It is a cross-platform application which runs on both Macs and PCs. Files are readable on either platform.

VW does everything Autocad does, and it does many things Autocad can't do.
