i'm beginning to understand why people love Mac (besides Lee), installing ACAD r2016 takes about 5 minutes...

result in acad v2016

Don't be fooled by the name - I'm not such a fan of AutoCAD for Mac...

It is getting better, but the customization side still needs some work so that all of your amazing LISP routines will work without needing to modify it.

That's why i like BricsCAD more, it looks exactly the same on Mac and Windows. Lisp support is awesome on Mac, Torsten Moses is doing a great job.
