I remember it well. It was bad then (not very usable). They have learned that there is a GOOD market for products like that in the Mac world. They also learned that people want an application not an OS or dedicated workstation. This is a good thing. So many have waited too long for this.
I worked for a company that put together proposals in 1996 and again in 1997 to port the Windows version to the Mac (especially 3D modeling stuff). Autodesk felt the market was not right at the time. Apparently
things have changed. (I would have loved to do this project but I am glad they waited for Mac OS X - it was a huge job just porting it, and that was System 7/8!. At the time Apple was even willing to kick in $ and resources to make it happen.)
