Maybe incorporating an addon or a plugin may come down the line to address these features. I can't see AutoDesk completely mirroring the PC platform software availability, would be too costly.
I'm honestly surprised that Autodesk even came out with AutoCAD for mac. They made a whole new version of the software for an OS that represents 5% of market share? (source:http://marketshare.hitslink.com/os-market-share.as
Well it's probably because the 5%-95% ratio is NOT true for the professional market. For drafters and designers, Macs are extremely predominant. My architecture school runs at about 75% Macs for example. And the incoming freshman year is well over 75% Mac.
Can you supply some citations that supports your 5%-95% ratio is NOT true for the professional market statement? I'm curious as to where macs are predominant. Schools have always been more mac centric; Apple used to give their computers to schools.
Although there are no 'official' stats about what designers use, the 5%-95% is for all computers worldwide in all markets. The 'home family user' is currently a PC based market due to the fact that PCs are much more affordable for people who just surf the web and play a few games.
It is widely regarded that Macs are the preferred choice to the designer because of their excellent handling of the Adobe Suite of programs as well as being more efficient and stable compared to their PC counterparts. I would estimate that 75% of publishers, film editors, graphics designers worth their salt use Macs. Architecture is one of the last design fields to move onto this OS, mainly because the array of programs have not been available.
If an Architectural is Mac based most are then using VectorWorks and Cinema4D. Politically Mac is missing out on a huge market and so are AutoDesk. The maority of young graduates are Mac based and want to use Macs in their profession (not go backwards to PC).
Therefore Autodesk see an opportunity to move into a market they do not control and over time Mac will in my opinion overtake PC in the architectural field.
