Screenshots of AutoCad for Mac surface – reportedly “Works like $#!%”

Our good friends over at TheAppleLounge have received some screenshots of a beta of AutoCad running on the Mac.

According to the user, the software “va una chiavica”, which loosely translates to “works like shit”. But it’s a very very early beta, so we predict by next month it will have progressed to working like crap.

    As a draftsman by trade, I can safely say that AutoCAD is supposed to work like shit. I wrestle with that behemoth on XP on a daily basis. I’m kind of upset to see this, I’ve always had an excuse for not bringing my work home.

    Let’s see, Autodesk said they were going to port their products for the Mac mere months after the intel debut it, what was it? 2005? That also happened to be a month after I bought a top-of-the-line Powerbook G4 (which I’m still stuck using).
    You can imagine that as an architect by trade, I was pretty pissed at my luck, but I’ve had the intervening years to find solace in them not delivering on the promise, and using VPC to emulate win2000 when I have to urase CAD at home.

    It’s 2010 and counting here. Way2Go, Autodesk! you’ve managed to drag this out over 5 years. Maybe with all that time, they’ve managed to create software that doesn’t have all of the memory issues, etc. since macs have a limited number of hardware profiles. But then again, this is Autodesk, after all…

    Now, I know that Maya worked like shit before Autodesk ever laid their hands on it… But still, if that’s any indication of what Autodesk considers passable Mac software… We’re in for a hell of a ride. Adobe, you’ve got some good competition in the worst Mac UI department!
