i never though i till hate a class that much. the past time with blender made me realize how nice it could be not to have any tool you would like to have but to have the tools you need direct under your finger tips.
somehow maya seems to me pretty complex thats fine but also blownup and hard to overview. maybe a maya crack will disagree with me for sure.
but i have to say blender is what i think about all the time while i play in maya. onle when i render in blender i think about maya/mental ray
