"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

"A"rchitectural "D"esk"T"op is my best guess. As "AD" was not good enough for marketing, they added the "T" from "T"op.

ADT = Architectural DeskTop

It's the same as Autocad (even the file format is the same) but with a lot of extra's for architects.
Mechanical Desktop and Land Desktop are also advanced versions of Autocad for specific professions.

Autodesk has a "Desk Top" for several disciplines.  They spell it Desktop but use both teh D and T.  If you go to their web site you will see also see Land Desk Top.  They used to have Mechanical Desk Top but have now shortened the name to Mechanical.

They also used to give them numbers.  You may see reference to ADT1 (R14), ADT2 (R2000), ADT3 (R2000 & 2002) and ADT4 (R2004).
