To tell you the truth autodesk would be better if they just left the programs alone...
You are making the whole world unproductive with every new version...
Will a 2009 file open in a 2000 program will it ever...
I like there programs but please just leave them alone...

there are free software for older versions that will open newer acad file versions...

so if you have, say, acad 2004 you can then open 2008 files with this program.. .no need to keep upgrading just to 'keep up with the jones'....

oh, and productivity increases with newer versions due to improved interfacing and cad tools...

In the process of downloading Autocad 2010 from the above link, so works for Irish applicants (A town planner at that!).. I'll confirm it all works when the instillation is complete!
