There's even another issue yet, which is that there is a certain kind of user that actually can benefit from Rhino's UI structure because it is set up to be similar to AutoCAD in many aspects.

So for example if you are working at an engineering firm that already uses AutoCAD for doing drawings, when you then take a look at Rhino it would feel a lot more familiar and easier to use to someone with that particular background.

There have definitely been places where Rhino was able to fit in more easily into a company because of that.

But being similar to AutoCAD tends to be bad for people who don't use AutoCAD regularly though.

Anyway though, that can be another factor - a change in Rhino could actually make it not fit in as well as it currently does for some particular companies.
