I hope I have helped spawn the development of a Mac version of the brilliant AutoCad application.

Autocad for mac ! We need it ! Tom says: 04/23/2009 at 8:28 pm It’s interesting that Solidworks came up, because Inventor is now tied to Windows, after dumping OpenGL for DirectX. Companies like to keep their options open. That’s what made the Intel transition possible for Mac OS X. But at the end of the day, it comes down to money. John Nack at Adobe likes to point out that they’d never recoup the development costs for a Linux port of Photoshop, since it would just cannibalize existing sales. It’s not that different for a Mac port of Autodesk. Comments are closed.
