This is mostly just to fill room between posts, since I don't see this as a posty-posty blog.
But let's face it, the software developers at Adobe and Autodesk are not being paid enough. Why? Because they manage to spit out new versions of their software way too often. I've been using Maya for just under two years and this is the fourth version I've encountered. (Maya 8, Maya 2008, Maya 2008 v.something, Maya 2009)
Seriously, slow down! And Adobe CS4!? We're still getting used to CS3 over here!
So. Moral of the story- if you're going to punch out so many versions of Maya and Adobe products... pay your people more. Or something. Or just slow down!
