Solidworks is targeting FRC Teams with xDesign

Not sure if the Onshape people are aware, but Solidworks is now targeting FRC teams with their xDesign web-based CAD "solution".  I decided to join the beta program just to test it out and from my, granted limited, experience they are way behind with fluid user experience when compared with Onshape, however, I can see them catching up soon.  I'm curious if anyone else has any experience with xDesign and what your thoughts are.  As a FRC team which still uses Solidworks for the design of their robots(I want to convert over to Onshape so badly) I am really torn.

    @tim_hess427,  that has been my experience with xDesign so far.  It has been tedious to use and I keep experiencing disconnects which boots me out.  I don't think that I'm going to bother with it much longer.  Onshape is much more polished.
