I (and I'm not alone) have always appreciated and respected your posts here (as well as other sites). I am always trying to objectively research other software alternatives and technologies that will better my chosen profession. Your objectivity between ArchiCAD and Revit has always been a good basis for discussions and debate. Keep up the good (and objective) fight.

So the ever-rabid sales-driven world of Autode$k is calling this
While this is not the official voice of Autodesk, I think there's more than just a warning shot that's been fired across your collective bow.
what a BS post!
it's like buying the software for the marketing department.
hellooo! we are architects, and we have other criteria to evaluate a software.
1. we don't use a software because it's 'worldwide adopted'. we like to use intuitive and innovative tools.
2. Revit content is waay too expensive. Like 500 USD for some ikea models. who needs them?
3. MEP calculations done by architects? what next? we will also have to excavate and lay bricks?
4. IES, Ecotect and GBS were 'developed' by autodesk or were 'acquired'?
5. do contractors use revit? don't think so, maybe autocad. anyway, why should we choose our tools based on contractor's tools? shouldn't this be the other way around?
6. was navisworks developed by autodesk? is it free? why do I need another product to detect clashes? why can't revit do that?
7. OMG! there will be 3 million revit users out there. good thing not all of them will be architects!
8. again, autodesk product line is made 95% of products that were bought, not developed.

Please consider me on the same page as Wes

I don’t know in the United Sates, but here in Puerto Rico a wave of change to Archicad is on the way, I don’t know why, but happens right now. That’s no bull.

There is a reason ArtLantis is popular. IF....a rendering engine inside the cad-program would be extremely fast...then OK...
I have use both revit and archicad. And I find that revit develop their render engine. In Revit 2008 they use accurender, but in revit 2009 they start to use mental ray. This make a gap between archicad and revit. Different from revit, archicad doesn't develop their render engine. I think if archicad use mental ray ot would be great. Because many people in my country proud of revit because its render.
