Mechanical Desktop was really cool back in Release 12, but it's a little out-dated now.
I started running AutoCAD with release 9 - got MD when it came out on R12, added Inventor when it was released and used it up until R2010. Added Solidworks in 2008 and while we still have AutoCAD to access our archive drawings (and I still do plant layout - sales drawings with AutoCAD) everything else we do here now is in Solidworks.
I took a one semester AutoCAD course in 1990 to help a friend out with his small business and it has provided me with 22 years of income.
