Yesterday I read former Autodesk CEO John Walker’s famous call to arms, Information Letter 14. It was written in spring of 1991, and predicted the near future of the PC industry at that time amazingly well. His argument in favor of integrating AutoCAD with Windows is particularly interesting in light of the current controversy over the Mozilla UI. Mozilla is the same on every platform, and consequently doesn’t look like the native applications on any of those platforms. AutoCAD was in the same boat, and I agree with Walker that integration is very important. The nightmare scenario is pretty humorous as well, given Microsoft’s activities over the past 9 years.
