This is some serious trouble. And I'm whining over 80€ Wi-Fi Sticks.

I'm REALLY surprised about this. I was assuming that if you pay 5000€, you will get the treatment royale with Autodesk helping and supporting you every step of the way. If they don't do that, what exactly are you paying for? Jeez, this is really disappointing.

Like Veronika bought Micrsosoft Office the other day. I tried to nudge her to use open source office suits but she wasn't happy with them. While they work well in Windows, they have some crappy Mac intergeneration. So she paid 140€ for it, it was MORE expensive then the Windows version (why?) and it turned out to be an empty box with the CD in a paper envelope. What a turn-off.

I will also check out Blender now. I was shocked when I found out that it is only 20MB! That totally blows my mind. 3ds max is HUGE in comparison. Just starting 3ds max may take longer then starting the whole PC. When I downloaded Blender, I thought it was only some web-installer or something but no - the whole program is only 20MB and it's free and has features very close to 3ds max.

I wonder if Autodesk will survive much longer with this strategy and in this kind of competition.
