About time?


This is exactly why you should not let friends drink and drive AutoCAD. Next thing you know you'll wake up next to some ugly proprietary "custom object" that is making your friends, your co-workers and your customers wonder about your decision making abilities while they struggle with the incompatible nature of custom object "proxy hell". Of course you listened to that fast talking ARX sales guy telling you that you'll never have to worry because all DWG objects are compatible with their software! Now that you think about it he never said the DWGs could be used by anybody elses products. Wow, you just put yourself in jeopardy of SINGLE VENDOR LOCKIN. Hmmm, right about now you want to chew that arm off thats wrapped around the ugly proxy and get away without it waking up. Too late my friend, your stuck with Mr. Proxy forever, so sorry, I guess you should have spoken up sooner.

This is a very good idea. I am quite sure the big ones like Autodesk and Dassault Systemes and others are bullying the smaller companies
