Apple "When it comes to Apple products, the iPad and the iPhone get all the headlines. But in recent years, the company's Macintosh line of computers has enjoyed a remarkable revival that has been vital to Apple's emergence as the most valued technology company on Wall Street. In the latest sign of that comeback, Autodesk plans to announce on Tuesday that it is bringing its flagship AutoCAD design and engineering software to the Mac for the first time in nearly two decades."

Where is version for Linux?

How come one segment of CAD software (CAE) is almost 100% Linux based while others are still toying with Windows (and port to Mac is considered a big step)?

Is that because CAD folks don't need a robust (as in "high performance, scalable, network transparent") work environment?

Is here any CAD engineer? How do you run simulations, verification, share design data etc?
