It's built into the OS. Quartz is almost exactly using PDF for all its drawing...
I mean, it's pretty damned easy in Cocoa to print to PDF if you can display it on the screen, just saying...

I could see making it Core2Duo or better. I could even see not supporting the first generation MacPro due to it 667zmhz bus and lesser PCIe Bus. But to cut out the 2008 model. All the companies who have been investing in new MacPros since the economy tanked please raise your hand. Yea,,,I thought so.

Bravo! Having to use that Windows "ribbon-based interface" at one of my jobs, I almost want to go out and buy an AutoCad I can't afford and don't need just to thank them for going with pull-down menus. The only UI worse than "ribbon-based" is the bizarre smattering of icons you see in Skype 5.0 for Macs.
AutoDesk is going to have to do something about that price though. As it stands now, users could buy the Windows version and a quite powerful Windows PC for less than they'd pay for just this still-feature-deprived Mac version. A lower price would mean more sales and perhaps higher profits.

I don't expect it can change. They won't undercut the Windows price since corporations are paying.
Autodesk, if you ever decide to sell to individuals, let me know.

It would also lead to MANY more upgrades to the next version.

Look at Maya. 2008 & 2009 is great for Snow Leopard but not 2010. When 2011 is released it is not compatible with Lion. Can't Autodesk just pay the damn $300 and participate in Apple's developer program.
