I have been a Navisworks user for a long time and manage 31 seats of Simulate and 1 Manage. I agree with much of what has been said previously about the product's enhancements since AutoDesk purchased it (many fewer improvements in capabilites and more tweaking the interface). But since AutoDesk owns it now, I am sure most would agree that the majority of changes will be in GUI and pricing rather than core functionality or speed. I say this based on what I've seen with other well-established AutoDesk platform products.
If I had one wish list item it would be for Freedom to have the Measurement tool enabled. If AutoDesk is afraid of giving away too many features for free I will point out that Adobe beat them to the punch with PDF over DWF. I would hate to see 3D PDF or something else beat AutoDesk to making Freedom a De-Facto standard for 3D model viewing just because they were slow to understanding what a gold mine they have purchased.
Just my 2 cents worth...
