I doubt that, I doubt that highly.
I am an Autocad user, and have ran both it, and office on the same machine with no problems whatsoever. Either you are full of excrement, or you are running things on a 386. I had no problems with drivers either. The experience was a great deal more pleasurable than dancing around with trying to get CUPS configured properly back then.
Back when this was an issue, I was working for a CAD software/machining design firm (as a support tech/software trainer). I dealt with this configuration on a regular basis, and it sure as hell ran a lot better than Linux at that time. The only time we ever used Linux in our IT dept was a couple of Knoppix live cd's we kept with us as an emergency measure. I dealt with numerous machining/tooling/fabrication firms all over the country, and never ran into a single customer that ever had a problem with Autodesk's stuff back then.
Your comments reek of pro-linux propaganda, as does much of the comments on this newspost.
