I'm curious if there is a side-by-side comparison of Bentley's Microstation v8i (Select series 3) with ESRI's ArcMap 10.1 showing capabilities and filetype acceptance.
I have heard some conversations lately where a Bentley user stated unequivocally that Microstation could do more and open more filetypes natively than ArcMap could.
I'm not a fan of either over the other, but I viewed Microstation as a CAD system with some GIS capabilities whereas ArcMap was a GIS system that could do CAD work. And that compared side-by-side Microstation would be the lower ranking application as ArcMap just had more capabilities. But now I'm wondering if there is something I am unaware of or whether someone else is just quite clueless.
