I think the reason why Carl Bass says there's "almost no demand for Linux" is because no one asked. Those of us who have played/worked with Linux knows it could be a compelling platform for AutoCAD and its verticals. However, because AutoCAD is also very tightly wound to the Windows OS it probably would be a tough and costly port to implement and tune for performance to any OS. Not to mention the added costs to Adesk of supporting more than one OS.

But that doesn't mean it should not be done. Many of us feel trapped in the Windows world forever _because_ of Autodesk. I for one would dump Windows like a rock if ADT were available for Linux.

Heck, I would seriously consider buying a Mac if it ran on OS X.

Well, maybe :)

Interesting interview. I agree with Matt though about Linux. I don't expect there to be an overwhelming demand for it, but at least sum
