    I opened the QuickCad discussion group a few months ago and was saddened
    to learn that AutoDesk had euthanased my good friend.

    Last Saturday I was wandering through an Officeworks store and picked up
    a copy of AutoSketch 9. I immediately recognised the face of QuickCad on
    the cover. I paid my tribute to AutoDesk. My computer embraced the CD.
    My friend was alive. I believe that it was embarrassed by a dumb name
    like QuickCad and changed its name – but why why to a boring and
    demeaning name like AutoSketch?

    KillaCad would suit better. The improved layer control is great.

    QuickCAD and AutoSketch have shared the same base for many years - the
    base being the old Drafix program.

    The AutoSketch name has been around a long time. It's the whole
    Auto---- thing with AutoDesk.

    I have AutoSketch Release 2, which I used with Windows 3.1. I really
    liked the interface, and the functionality seemed adequate for
    everything I wanted to do. R2 will load and run under Windows 98, 2K
    and XP, but it doesn't work properly (at least not on my systems). A
    number of things either don't work properly, or don't work at all.
    However, enough things work that I was able to use R2 recently with
    Win2k to update some drawings, and I was reminded of what a great
    program it is/was.

    Is there anyone who can comment on how the Autosketch 9 interface
    compares with R2 for convenience and usability? How steep would the
    learning curve be to go from R2 to 9?

    Thanks for any comments.
