The other "BIM" software usage question

I was randomly cleaning out some Twitter stuff, opening some links and at some point down that path, I wound up on a blog post by Robin Capper from 8/10/08. In BIMzarro world, Robin wrote a blog post referring to a post I had just written.

Essentially, it was about Autodesk including AutoCAD Architecture in the Revit Architecture Suite package starting in September of 2008. You all remember AutoCAD Architecture, formally known as Architectural Desktop, the BIM before there was BIM Revit explosion. I guess I'm curious. Are any of you Revit Architecture Suite users using AutoCAD Architecture? If you are, are you using any of the features or using it as vanilla CAD?

Is anyone out there using AutoCAD Architecture for their BIM projects? Does anyone know of a general contractor using it instead of Revit?

Our timber factory (a sister company under the same flag) is using it as a platform for their TimberCAD software. We've successfully loaded a Revit wall with windows as IFC and it was able to process it according to it's own rules.

The new version will actually use Revit as a basis, and include an ADT viewer to automate what we've tested in a fraction of the time.
