Ah, NOW I finally understand the occasional acrimony...!  I will point out 
that although I _am_ Italian, and did use to work for mech CAD giant 
think3, our CAD programs were NOT used by FIAT (by Pininfarina, yes, but 
then their industrial designs are widely used by firms all over the world) 
-- I drive a Honda car, and back when I was a biker I drove a Honda bike 
(and my NON-motor bike is an Atala:-).
