Sending it back to the French

I'm sick and tired of all the crashes with Solidworks. Time to send it back
to them French A-holes and start supporting Pro-E, an AMERICAN MADE
software...that doesn't crash every 30 minutes!

Uh, SolidWorks is developed in Massachussetts, mostly. It was founded American, and just happens to now be owned by a French multinational. Are you sure you have grounds for jingoism?

If anything, "grounds for jingoism" sounds rather like an oxymoron

Thanks. I only recently learned that word myself. It doesn't seem to be in common usage. I did find that simply knowing the word has helped me to steer clear of that unhealthy social movement.

When it comes to A-holes, the French have nothing on the corporate culture at PTC.

Maybe the Americans should give programming back to the French company that originally invented the kernel and see if they can fix what we broke. The whole reason for crashes (in my opinion) is that the damn file sizes are so damn big you can open them up anymore without stealing all your RAM...even with the 3gb switch in place. I mean holy crap I have part files that are half a GB (Part mind you not assembly)...no wonder SWx crash every hour. What a waste of time.
This is an old topic...I'm taking my happy pill!

Parametric Technology Corporation Summary: According to a Press Release dated 2/14/03, the complaint charges that defendants violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, by issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements to the market between October 19, 1999 and December 31, 2002. The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Parametric issued numerous statements and filed quarterly and annual reports with the SEC which described the Company's supposedly increasing revenues and financial performance. These statements were materially false and misleading when made, the complaint alleges, because the Company had overstated its revenue since fiscal 1999, in violation of generally accepted accounting principles and because the Company lacked adequate internal controls and was unable to accurately determine and report the Company's financial condition. On December 31, 2002, after the close of regular trading, Parametric issued a press release announcing a '$20 to $25 million of previously recognized maintenance revenue which should have been deferred and recognized in fiscal 2003 and later periods.' Accordingly, the Company announced, it 'expects to report a corresponding reduction in maintenance revenue in prior periods, primarily in fiscal year 2002.' In reaction, on January 2, 2003, shares of Parametric closed at $2.19 per share, after hitting an intraday low of $1.95, as compared with a Class Period high of $32.88 per share, reached on December 16, 1999.
