We migrated as soon as we got the release. Found it to be as stable as

I received my IV 2008 Pro Upgrade and I am leery about running the upgrade
now or should I wait until all the inevitable bugs are worked out?

Thank you. I was told by my reseller that 2008 loads quicker, is this true?
R2008 by no way loads or installs faster. In fact its larger than ever
now being shipped on 2 DVD's.
And R2008 is a very stable release, although there are lots of "little"
bugs, I am actually very impressed with how little crashing I have had.
Hopefully we will sp1 out soon to fix up the small stuff.

In the past we have loaded each new release as soon as it arrives. But this release (all new releases) we are trying to wait until SP1 comes out. It all depends on what the bugs/issues are with a new release. Sometimes its not problem to work around the bugs, other times you can waste a few days on a new release and its issues.
and a few days wasted each year is not what we need.
(of course I probably waste a few days just browsing this forum each year)
I wish ADSK would do a 2 year release cycle just to have more time to work out the bugs before the software is released.

IV 2008 installed without issue and I've had no problems. I was quite leery after the install nightmare I had with IV11 (sp2 was fine once installed). I was also please that the content center seems to work out of the box now.
Thank you. As you stated, it comes in a two DVD package. Each disk is approx 4 Gb. This seems like a lot of new stuff should be in it for just an upgrade considering the original IV11 Pro install was half the size at 4 GIG's.
The temptation is there but I think I'll hold off for a while. I have two clients that are still using AutoCAD 2002 and one that is still running R14! I really have only one firm that stays up to date with their software and they have not upgraded yet.
The customer is always right so I think I will let the almighty dollar decide for me.
