2015 Revit Just Doesn't Give A Shit
From the splash screen - which didn't change at all (the text is a little bolder), and still shows some kind of amorphous pile of shit (which is what Revit turns every single project into), to the shitty 'Ribbon', to the pointlessly obtuse processes necessary to complete even the most basic tasks - the good folks at Autodesk have once again managed to convey their utter contempt for anyone tasked with using their under-developed bloatware.
While listening to the same bullshit claims, empty promises, and outright disregard for reality on yet another project wallowing in Revit hell - the reasons for reluctance to make any significant changes were clear.
I always mention that it would be an admission of massive glaring oversights in the first place - and, of course, the fact that they hindered themselves greatly by purchasing 3rd party software - rather than develop something themselves - but at this point the fact is - they can't change it, or it wouldn't be Revit anymore.
The Reviteers would revolt - as they have carefully manipulated their workplaces to reduce productivity, eliminate communication, and propagate a circle-jerk of epic proportions - all while preaching that that total allegiance to Revit is the only way.
If Autodesk started giving a shit - and sent someone outside of the Revit hive-mind to go through even a fraction of the many, many, many lists of requests that they have received for much needed improvements and honest assessments of its shortcomings - they would be appalled at how little this 'tool' resembles what the industry it has been foisted on requires to get the job done.
They might demand a complete overhaul - and at that point that person would get shouted down by both Autodesk (who has proven it doesn't want to spend any real time or money developing this software further - see 'sketchy lines'), and Revitbots who have adapted to burning massive amounts of profit and not giving a shit.
And (as always) if you are on-board with Revit, or are otherwise too fucking stupid and out-of-touch with reality to understand why it is a cancer on this industry - then Fuck You.
