Let's give this project a chance, please. I use Blender for alot of my work and have found that even though it is a difficult piece of software to become comfortable with, it is able to produce some very nice results. There are some minor little forks of Blender, but they are tailored to certain directions and/or platforms. I really don't see how Blender, GIMP, Inkscape, OpenOffice or all the other open source projects I dearly love and use regularly are stagnant or have "a million forks". I really don't feel I am voicing some vague opinion. Just consider giving open source a chance. I like it better than the closed source software I had to rely on until this new movement gained some strength and popularity. P.S. Come back in 2 years and lets see how things worked out. In the meantime, go back 2 years and see what people said about the open source software I previously mentioned.
