Don't be so sure, after all as I mentioned before, one of the things being asked in the latest survey was whether you'd want to see the integration of a fluid simulator.

That being said I'm not completely disagreeing with you on a few points about autodesk's monetary policies, I won't say any more...

The last I heard Autodesk mention Naiad was in one of their 'expert challenge' webinars.
Check it out here (video will start playing at 15:30~)

Personally, I would say if you are looking at Fluids in 3ds max to give PhoenixFD a look. They have been doing a lot of new features and updates (at least in the nightly builds) including stuff like wavelet and more advanced liquid simulations. You can see what Ivaylo has been doing in the forum here or his Vimeo page here.

Wish I had more time to invest in working/playing with it, but have the day to day work first. :-/

Some more light on Naiad here:

Quote: We asked Gruman point blank “you have these great best of categrory products, you bought Naiad, our question is … can we have it back please?” Gruman responded that firstly (and perhaps surprisingly) if a customer has a project you can approach Autodesk at almost a consulting level and they will do special one off Naiad sales. But more importantly, he said “we did not buy it to put it on a shelf” (meaning bury it) and went on to say it very much will be reappearing. He can’t discuss when, but from his reaction he seemed both very excited and keen to see the new product or product extensions involving Naiad return to the front of house, and be available for everyday customers to use and work with. For his money “that can’t happen soon enough.” While no timeline was given, know that fxguide will be exploring this again around Siggraph this year in a few months.
