Oh, well... maybe i was just too used to PsP... or maybe i'm just stupid... =)
Maybe is the same with Blender: you are used to the way of other modellers...
When i passed from w98 to Linux i found it horrible, stupid and 
counterintuitive, now that i know it i find it very elegant and efficent.

My brother (he's 13) learned it with 2 bad-written tutorials (he does not 
speak english)...
And he used Bryce untill now.

Well, maybe the 30%-70% thing is true... (and is true also for GIMP, but with 
98%-2%... Ok, the simplest solution is that i'm stupid... =)
