Since 15 years, many professional users have given Blender a look, but threw it away when they found the left mouse button placed the 3D cursor at the mouse position instead of selecting the object in front of them. That begins to change today.
The commit comes complete with various changes elsewhere in the keymap to accommodate more standard key commands and to avoid key conflicts. The old keymap with right-click selection is still around, but you can now handle Blender in a similar way as every other app. on your PC.
Blender 2.8’s current builds are stable enough for actual 3D work, so wait until the buildbots updates again and enjoy.
