PTC has been a pioneer of sorts in CAD and there will hardly be anyone (competitors incl.) who would (or should I say should?) refute that. However, over the past year there has been a lot of talk (read 'speculation') regarding a potential sell-out and even almost a year down, this speculation refuses to die. Aargh!I think their recent product development strategy and acquistions should put all these speculations to rest. If there are business reasons, PTC might still decide to sell out and that is something for PTC execs to answer. But as an industry observer I would rather have 4-5 big players competing with each other and churning out better products, trying to get one up over competition. The user benefits. Consolidation of companies will affect this. Depending on who the buyer is, who knows it could mean the death of the technology. Till(If) that happens, we should enjoy the products as they come!

I know that the recession has been in place in most part of the globe. But I'm sure when the company was under huge profits, they could have looked forward for an alternative savings, "as a common man does"

Hope all CAD Companies recover from this global recession, as millions of people do business today with CAD Technology.
