Team Center isn't a team player

Today my CATIA crashed as I tried to save my changes into TeamCenter (PDM).

Nice, but… Whattahell is...

On OSX platform we have just Siemens NX from the industry-standard triumvirate (ProE, NX, CATIA) with OpenMotif GUI. Trust me: You don't want that. Oh, and AutoCAD...
