What I’m MORE worried about is that AutoDesk have been systematically purchasing every big 3D software company out there - thus making it harder to “argue” against an eventual onslaught from a horde of advocates trying to “speak” Autodesks cause
against the increasing threat of OpenSource software like Blender is…
…it’s no longer “a little piece” of insignificant software. By eliminating the
entire competition (aka - owning 90 percent of the 3d software out there) there
will be “no one” to side with us…except …well…us.
I’m serious! I’ve been following Blender since it’s breakout-from-stockholders-prison
back in NaN days, and it’s personal… can you imagine? It’s like a child you really
love THIS much - and you just wouldn’t stand for it getting destroyed by
something that only wants “money” and “greed” - while I have NOTHING against
capitalism itself - I oppose human “natural killer instinct greed”…that has
nothing to do with fair competition…it’s just “KILL the competition” attitude…
not with features…but by LAW… I hate that… and one of my biggest worries
is that one day - this WILL happen… I hope I’m wrong…but we better not
sleep on our laurels - but prepare - and make sure that Blender code and originality
always stays that way!
