Revit Architecture Suite to Include AutoCAD Architecture

I have been waiting for this a long time…

From the Autodesk site

Upcoming Release of AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite to Include AutoCAD Architecture

The latest release of AutoCAD® Revit® Architecture Suite software is scheduled for shipping on September 15. This release expands the software applications that comprise the suite to include AutoCAD® 2009, AutoCAD® Architecture 2009, and Revit® Architecture 2009 under a single license. There are no changes to the features and functionality in the products themselves.

Autodesk is including AutoCAD Architecture 2009 software in the AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite 2009 product to make it easier and more cost-effective for AutoCAD Architecture customers to transition to building information modeling (BIM) using Revit Architecture software.

As part of their Autodesk® Subscription benefits, AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite 2009 subscription customers will automatically receive the release of AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite 2009 that includes AutoCAD Architecture software when it becomes available. Customers who are not on subscription will not be entitled to this benefit and will need to purchase subscription to gain access to the new product offering.

AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite is a Subscription Only product.

Chances are you already have a significant investment in AutoCAD® or AutoCAD® Architecture software, but you also want the competitive advantage of building information modeling (BIM). With AutoCAD® Revit® Architecture Suite software, migration is easy.

Finally. I’ve asked for this since Autodesk acquired Revit!

This doesn’t make sense. Revit users will receive ACA for free? if they already have BIM, then why go to another program? What am I missing?

I don’t know the difference between the 2 versions below:

Revit Architecture 2009
Revit Architecture 2009 for AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite 2009

Ok, it seems obvious… But I need to know if both of versions allows to export to autocad 2009 and keep the layers read to plot (with difference between them, like in revit) because I exported to autocad 2009 and did not keep the layer weights.
Tks for attention!

*keep the layers read to plot

I meant keep the layers ready to plot 😀

The reason this is good is for the ones who have ADT/ACA. Now they get to use Revit or ADT/ACA or ACAD. Take your pick.
