I agree. In a year or two, names & details will be forgotten. Maybe

Also, my 2 cents on Autodesk. If there's a message that's in danger  
of being lost, it's that Autodesk "gets it". All of the effort and  
resources that have been put in, including the way the Where2.0 booth  
was done are clearly because Autodesk has decided the way forward in  
this industry is to think outside the box, to jump into FOSS with  
both feet and to do things right. The only other company I can think  
of that is doing FOSS at this scale is IBM. That is a story to be
