Blender & Cygwin
> Don't underestimate the power of Cygwin! :-)
Ever tryed to port a multiplayer?
Network performance drops.
This is a point where Linux is much stronger than w32...
(Except for multicast... i still have to find out how to make a "search for
available server" function...)

Yes, Blender interface may get you mad but consider that:
1. GIMP is the same.
A very good interface ->once<- you understand it.
I was getting crazy while learning it.
2. Blender interface is designed to let you work _fast_, so learning is worth
3. There are lots of basic/interface tutorials around.
Watch out http://www.blender3d.org/Education/ .
4. I still have not managed to come up with the interface. =)
