I use Autodesk products everyday and know that they are charging more every year to do so. Autodesk became the software of choice years ago because it could be copied for free - An office with 20 architects used a single license. Today, that same office of 20 will have 20-40 licenses (half for AutoCad, the other half for Revit). There is better software available, but it's Autodesk products that everyone is familiar with. When the construction industry rebounds, and architects/engineers are hiring - Autodesk profits will go through the roof.A few lean years left, but I'm betting real money on this one.
