Really Important News!!!

Hi everyone... As problably you had heard, yes it is true, AutoCAD Land Desktop is going to be Discontinued...
Due to the decreasing demand for AutoCAD Land Desktop software and the increasing use of AutoCAD Civil 3D software in production, AutoCAD Land Desktop 2009 and AutoCAD Civil 3D - Land Desktop Companion 2009 software will be the final releases of the Land Desktop product.
But customers with current subscription will continue to receive subscription benefits to support legacy workflows for AutoCAD Land Desktop-based projects, AutoCAD Civil 3D software subscription customers can download AutoCAD Civil 3D - Land Desktop Companion via Subscription Center. This will include:
- Land Desktop Companion 2009
- Land Desktop Companion 2008
- Land Desktop Companion 2006 and 2007
And the Land Desktop Companion product will no longer be included in the AutoCAD Civil 3D software box.
But not everything sounds that bad, Autodesk is coming out with another software which is a Light version of AutoCAD Civil 3D and it will be called AutoCAD Civil, this version will be available later on this year. OK, What does this mean to all of us???. Here is a comparison table between both softwares, so you could have an idea of what is coming soon... I'm really excited to see Autodesk new babe and what this new solution can do for us...
