    R14.01 was fast, stable, ran in Windows, about at bulletproof as they came...
    Of course trying to use it today is a chore, after you are used to some of the features introduced over the last 12 years that are missing from R14...

    The largest gap in available features was probably R11>R12.

    Although I use 2008 for modelling and rendering, I still use 2004 for 2d drafting (which is 90% of my office's work).
    However, I have good memories from R14 (solid as a rock!), and I don't want to see again R12...

    My favorite version is whichever version finally lets me create 3D dynamic blocks with more than one visibility state. Barring that, I do prefer 08 to 09. Haven't been able to use 2010 until we can use it with HSBcad.
    Just because you're , doesn't mean wrong is all that's .

    I looked onto the 2010 Architecture today. Architecture 2008 still will be my favorite version.

    I feel that 2008 is the modern 2004. Very stable, at least for me it is. Great 2D tools, bug fixes from 2004, 04, 06 & 07, new tools and very fast in XP.

    Interesting results seeing that 2009 is the top favorite version, considering that it has a ribbon.

    2004 was a great, solid AutoCAD version. I liked it best for awhile, even getting into 2006 I still loved 2004. 2007 was good but my heart was and still is set on 2008. 2008 was a great, stable version as well, then they had to go and change things in '09 and up. Having said that I do like where AutoCAD is going though so I don't wanna knock it too much - except for the Ribbons. The Ribbon is a joke for speedy cadder's.
