AutoCAD has a long history, and we go back all the way.  Our primary developer started using AutoCAD with version 1.0 on the original IBM PC with a 10mb hard drive and CGA graphics (now we have mp3 files larger than that).  Here is a detailed history, including corresponding drawing versions, .NET framework used, etc.
