Thanks for the links.

I've read over the preview guide for the past few weeks just... either smacking my forehead, shaking my head, or cheering.  Very mixed feelings, but this release, more than previous has definitely caused stronger feelings than before.  What sucks, sucks harder, and what is cool, is way cool.

I'm happy that many things are allowed to be turned off, though.  I find it ludicrous that they make such flippant decisions about interface though... I mean how many of us just got used to using the Dashboard and have come to use it?  Now it's totally gone!  What the frick, Autodesk... seriously come on.  *shakes head*

Maybe next year they'll work on some features that actually help get a model displayed properly on construction documents, instead of worrying about wasting time and effort on a bunch of crap that will never leave the computer.  HOW ABOUT WORRYING ABOUT THE PAPER RESULT, YOU NINNIES?!  That's what we all make the money on!!!!

*edit*

Sorry, one slipped through the filter... toned it down a bit, but made it RED to emphasize the anger :P

For those that have interest.

AutoCAD 2009 is going to blow you away at first, not because of any spectacular new features, but because the UI has changed in such a dramatic way.

Oh boy a new UI. *sigh*

Is it really as big as it looks?

thanks for the info. :-)

I've been using 2009 for a while and it's pretty good, very stable.

I don't like the new ribbon, but you get used to it very quickly.

What about the CUI, has it changed as well?

So you're saying we don't have a choice?

Me thinks you can turn that feature off, and stay with the "classic" look.

There's a sysvar (menustyle or something like that) that you can put the menus back where they intuitively belong.

That's one thing I can really applaud them for... I think they learned from recent problems... most all the new stuff that is rather controversial... can be turned off!

So what does THIS beast need for hardware??  Looks real purty-like, but how much RAM do I need?  I'm guessing they'll be "recommending" 4GB for MEP!!

Meh to the javascript on your site that throws up distracting and annoying dialogs, significantly detracting from reading the potentially interesting info. Guess I'll just mark it unsafe.
