Indeed, that is a nostalgic post.

Is the old GenericCADD available for download somewhere?

I remember during my first job as a CAD support executive with HCL - then India's only Autodesk distributor, we went around showing GenericCADD to computer-illiterate users, way back in 1989 in India.


I'm amazed that using 10 yr. software for CAD is really a thing. Kinda cool, but with free modern 2D CAD applications (even available on Linux), where's the advantage?

Maybe it's equivalent to my 22-year-old daughter playing LPs on a record player and taking film photography with LoMo cameras.

Or, maybe it's not.


My father still uses this Software in 2013... the orginal Generic CAD from 1993, running on his P1-100 machine. Its interesting to see him drawing side views etc. I felt a little bis nostalgic when I saw him doing this last time. I got a i5 running Autocad 2013 and all that shiny features included nowadays.
