Not exactly disagreeing

There are times when furring strips are the right way to go. If your ceiling is wavy or out of level the new drywall will just follow the old. Shimming furring strips is a good way to fix those imperfections. Was your ceiling textured originally? Was it textured to hide some kind of damage? Such as cracks or settleing lines? If so, drywall attached directly to it may develop the same problems. If the drywall is sound with no damage and you just don't like the look, I would think maybe you could just have it "skim coated" with a fresh layer of compound for even less expense.
