as said a friend of mine:
Ton is “THE CREATOR” he knows better than any other how blender works, if he can’t going on developing blender because Net Ventures do not allow him to do that, why not make a clone (open source or not) improving the actual one the community and Ton ?
If Blender is going to keep at the fridge as a frozen proyect then is time to do as the phoenix and born again from the ashes of experience.
Start coding again using the newest technologies and improving blender-new-generation.
As was in the NaN plans for the version 3.0
