This is, quite literally, a historical landmark for Autodesk. This is the first Mac version of AutoCAD for a long, long time and it is not just a conversion to Mac either. It is a whole new version of AutoCAD. Trust me, I have had a play on it and it is superb! Slick, fast and reliable.I think Bill Gates need to take a quick look behind him once in a while. Bet he didn’t see this one coming! Happy AutoCAD for Mac’ing! SB
