AutoCAD for Mac won't go away
Let's revisit the How do you feel about AutoCAD for Mac poll once more. Steve Johnson (at the top of my list of most respected CAD bloggers BTW...) commented that he did not vote since there was "no option that accurately reflects my own feelings...because the options are all either positive or neutral". I initially replied to the comment, but now feel a better reply is needed.
Steve is exactly right. My poll module only allows me to ask a question and create choices, there is no provision for general discussion or an explanation. So when putting this poll together (in about 60 seconds I might add...), in my head the choices meant something like:
- Excited: "Hey, I'm a MAC guy outside of the CAD world, this is just what I've been waiting on"
- Intrigued: "I'm a PC guy, but I've used Macs before. I may want to check this out."
- Curious: "Hmmm... I don't know much about Macs, but I know some people who do - maybe I'll check it out if someone gets it"
- Could not care less: "I have no interest in Macs. I only care about the current and future versions for the PC"
At the time, the last choice was my negative option, but I can see how this could be considered neutral. At least one more choice could have been added, something along the lines of "I don't care about Macs, this was a bad decision and a waste of Autodesk resources."
Having said all of that, polls found here are just that; A poll on a website. I don't do an IP search for each vote cast, I don't require a login to vote, etc.
What do you think? (BTW: Could not care less has climbed to 44% as of now...)
