Autodesk Announces Acquisition of Navisworks

This morning, Autodesk announced that it will be aquiring Navisworks.

This is exciting, but at the same time, I'm not sure what it will mean for the development of Navisworks as a tool for contractors. Navisworks has been the "Switzerland" of BIM softwares, accepting files from a wide range of other software platforms.

Will Navis become too friendly with Revit and start ignoring the others? Or is this Autodesk's attempt to reach out and start playing nice? Is Autodesk waking up?

this a great score for Autodesk. we use Navisworks often for viewing and coordinating models. hope this turns out to be good for the a/e industry.
