In November 1993, Autodesk announced ``AutoCAD LT'', which had been developed under the code-name ``Madison.'' AutoCAD LT, priced at $495, became the first product in the company's history priced below $1000 to bear the name ``AutoCAD.'' The specifications of AutoCAD LT invite comparison with the original concept of an ``AutoCAD Lite'' penned more than nine years earlier (see page [Ref]), and the specifications of the ``Windows Engineer'' envisioned in the ``Nightmare Scenario'' of Information Letter 14 (see page [Ref]).
