Hey Phil, you don’t need to take it personally. Pretty sure that’s meant more of a “come in, the water’s fine” than a “my tools is better than your tool”. I mean, blender is free. It’s always “our” tool
A lot of us who started with the early lightwave feel abandoned by Newtek and are still frustrated with them. You can simply go to newtek.com and see where their focus is now, I literally had to search to find lightwave 3d mentioned on the page. I’m pretty sure that’s why Stu and Allen left in the first place. Now the same stagnation is happening with modo.
At the same time, we also feel encouraged by the amazing pace that Blender has been making and want to share it. Especially with our old lightwave buddies.
Honestly one of my favorite features about blender is that there is no corporation trying to figure out how to squeeze more profit out of it and cut costs. It’s only about making the best tool ever.
(and you don’t even have to buy a $2,400 switcher- oh I mean dongle, to go with it.) ugh, those were the days
