    A retired Auto Industry executive, Lee Iacocca, once used Thomas Paine's famous quote when he said "Lead, follow, or get out of the way". Autodesk continues to show its excellent aptitude to follow, yet spin the market so it appears to be a leader. Perhaps at their present pace they will soon be "getting out of the way"!
