AutoCAD is returning to the Mac!

I think my transition to the Mac is now complete

Cool I guess. Though this would be more riveting news if Solidworks came to mac.

Will there be a big market for a Unix based ACAD? Also the Mac OS is based on Unix so porting it from a mac to other Unix based OS's shouldn't be that hard.

I'm sure if AutoCAD becomes a success amongst Mac users, Solidworks won't be far behind.

That seems reasonable. Google just turned up this with a quick search: http://www.deskeng.com/virtual_desktop/?p=1119
Seems promising.

If this thread didn't involve software that was obscure to 90% of individuals, it'd probably morph into another mac v pc debate
