I had someone pm about learning blender as a complete noob, and i refered them to the blender noob to pro wikibook when i thought about blender 2.5 coming out. The problem is there are not very many good beginner tutorials out for blender 2.5 yet and wont be for another few months.
With my experience i adjusted from 2.49 to 2.5 in just a few days, so I gave him advice to learn 2.49 from the wikibooks and then switch when he is comfortable with the program.
What are your guys thoughts on this? Its gona be a hard start for the new beginners out there who wont be able to follow many tutorials.
