Eric Johanson, security researcher: "If you look at the number of published vulnerabilities in software and the number of users and compare Windows versus Mac OS you will discover that Mac OS has far more published vulnerabilities per user than Windows does so I think the data pretty much speaks for itself."

What makes them think "vulnerabilities per user" is a meaningful metric?   :?

Well, it would make the life of a desk jockey a little more interesting if they released an AutoCAD for the Wii.

Don't forget to protect your system. Wear a wrist band.  :-)

People who will buy macs to use AutoCAD:

IT nerds and Architects...
HAHAHAHA That was way too funny
heh!

Jokes on me. I've been transferred to IT - guess who my boss is? A Mac Lover.

I'm going to be tasked to write all my new stuff and migrate all the .net apps to ObjectARX to get ready for the Mac Version!

Let us know how it goes.  Hopefully, you don't end up spending a ton of time converting a bunch of .NET apps to ObjectARX, and then spend the time and effort to test them on both PC and Mac, only to have hardly anyone use Mac Autocad.

Some people seem to be excited by the Mac version, but for the majority of users, the basics haven't changed.  Namely, PC's are significantly cheaper than Mac's for the same performance, and that's a key factor in corporate buying decisions, especially when purchasing a lot of machines.

What are you going to use for a GUI, wxWidgits?

I don't have a clue yet, I've got to do some research. It's been a few years since I've done any C++ / ObjectARX and I wasn't very good then.

C++ / ObjectARX was my ultimate objective 10 years ago when I started writing vba code but then .Net came along.

I think you might be able to use mono for UI

The problem with mono is that you can't do mixed mode modules, pretty useless for doing cad plug-ins.

I've been working with wxWidgits for the last few weeks and Its really nice. I bought a copy of DialogBlocks (www.dialogblocks.com) and I must say, this is a really slick program.  It generates all the .HPP  .CPP and XML resources files.

I hope you'll post some of your thoughts when you get into McArx.  :laugh:

I will.
It's going to be slow going I'm afraid.

I'm just now boning up on my objectarx and c++ creating proto-types for mixed managed projects.
