AutoCAD on the Mac

I’ve seen the announcement on several blogs “Autodesk is now officially supporting AutoCAD 2010 on Mac“.
However if you read a little bit more further, than you’ll find out that AutoCAD is supported on BootCamp.

Mac OS X 10.5 - LeopardBootCamp is a Mac OS X 10.5 component, which allows you to install Windows XP or Vista on a seperate partition to run Windows apps. Those apps can make use of the Mac hardware processors, 3D graphics accelerators etc.
You have to re-boot to be able to switch between Mac OS and Windows.

Waiting on full Mac support, I would prefer VMware Fusion. This virtualization software allows running a Windows machine as guest on the Mac OS.
