- We ended up showing the prototype of Cardfile,
which had been renamed ``Autodesk'' and Interact, which was then
called ``MicroCAD'' in a booth with a company name of Desktop
Solutions. Desktop Solutions was later rejected as a company name by
California, so we had to choose again...and again...and again.
``Autodesk''-snappy name that! MicroCAD was such a neat name for a
CAD product that a certain fine gentleman who saw us using it at the
show ran out and trademarked it out from under us, and used it for
his own product. Success did not smile upon his product; the wheel of
Karma turns slowly, but it is accurate to the least significant bit.
