This isn't news to you. It is interesting and newsworthy to me[snip]
I would think that goes without saying; of course I only speak for myself. Defensive much? Shill? Trolling? I'll bite. I was commenting on how I perceive it (frankly as a paid-for posting) given the article's lack of content. Everyone's entitled to an opinion and fortunately we don't even have to agree on that point.
I agree with him completely. If you're not interested in this article, why don't you read and comment in another thread, one which you find interesting and newsworthy, instead of trying to convince us that this one isn't so.
Great, more power to you. I'm not trying to convince you of anything, contrary to your claim, but just replying to a thread I started. If it bothers you that much, you're just as welcome to disagree with someone else's thread too (or post your own). ;)
As far as interesting and relevant CAD news goes, I still contend that there are plenty of better things to be discussing. Even the choice of "Creo" for a new product name is more newsworthy (and absurd ditching their Pro/E mark) or the fact that their stock has crashed nearly 25% this past quarter. Or GrabCAD's competition: http://www.zwsoft.com/en/about/press_center/press_releases/20120406/ZW3D-and-GrabCAD-Present-a-3D-CAD-Model-Challenge.html
Less defensiveness, more objectivity. It's a good thing.
