AutoCAD Release 12 was the mother of all software packages. It got a special mention by PC Magazine in 1992 for having a package size that spanned something like two feet of shelf space. (I still have my copy of the software, but it is buried at the back of one of my storage areas.)
Then the AutoCAD package began shrinking, first to CDs, then to DVDs, and finally downloads. With 2012's emphasis on suites, the download size is getting a bit large, and so the suites are available on 16GB and 32BG USB keys (aka thumbdrives). For example, Ultimate Product Suite takes up 17GB.
(Don't think you can reuse these USB keys; they are read-only and I found that Linux won't even mount them.)
Here is my photoshot of unboxing:
1. The boxes for the design suites are about 5.5" wide and 4" tall, by 1" thick. Here are the boxes for the Ultimate versions of ProductDesign Suite and Design Suite. The difference between the two: one has more software on it.
3. Open the black box to see the USB key nestled inside.
5. The USB key is triangular in shape, made of plastic. The color is titanium, with a nice clear yellow accent line. There is a hole with which the system administrator can lockdown the key.
Both boxes have USB keys that look identical. This means that you cannot tell which software suite is on which USB key.
6. Open the key by pulling hard on the cap.
7. The back of the key has all kinds of logos that you normally don't see on any other USB key. This must be a very dangerous one.
8. To install the software, plug the key into a USB port on your computer. Double-click the Setup.Exe file. The Serial No. and Product Key are pasted on the back of the cardboard wrapper.
TIP: The cap is very tight. Don't make Al Dean's mistake and try to twist off the cap. That's just breaks off the connector.
