Urgent Update- AutoCAD 2010 Update 1 - Hurry, before AutoCAD crashes again....

Woo Hoo. The new phone books are here. The new phone books are here and my name is in it. Oh, sorry wrong blog. For all you 2Die For Addicted to Line fanatics, you can start downloading now, and hopefully by morning your AutoCAD update will have downloaded.

For the record, any one out there complaining about Revit not being ready yet to use for full production, get a life. AutoCAD is 26 years old and still crashes. Look below and see all of the issues. Don't dare ever insult our precious, industry changing, BIM creating, LEED ass kicking, IPD based software until yours stops having problems with blocks. Blocks...yawn. Anyone got any parametric content that can help do energy calcs. Andekan.com and maybe one or two other, but they're kick as intellgent real life content components. Blocks. X marks the spot.

Anyway, I shouldn't even be posting something this far removed from Revit on my blog, but it's a public service announcement.

Hi Gregory. You must really be *really* good at what you do, for Autodesk to let you be a reseller and yet bag non-stop on their bread-and-butter program line.

I'm not saying Revit is bad or that we shouldn't use it, but I like AutoCAD and this post has finally pushed me over the tipping point of being able to restrain comment.

You consistently conveniently ignore (or have been blinded to by the Autodesk marketing team) the fact that AutoCAD Architecture is just as viable a BIM solution as Revit. That, coupled with your wholesale condemnation of those who aren't instant proselytes of this Reviligion (there, I coined a term, too .-) has made it increasingly difficult for me to follow your blog with any shred of open-mindedness.

Honestly, my respect (and $$) is much more likely to go to the salesman who can acknowledge the successful features of AutoCAD and fully explain how those processes are improved, or at least achievable, by Revit.
