Don't get me wrong:
I know Blender is OSS and I downloaded it again recently to see the improvements. I agree that it packs a lot of features but there's a steep learning curve involved. In all fairness it has improved. SOme 'intuitive' features include simply moving the mouse cursor to initiate object translation (moving object). But basic features requires specific knowledge of the software instead of just clicking icons (kinda like driving the car with steering wheel in the glove compartment). Im checking the blender tutorials carefully to get up to speed to attain the ease of use I get with that other 'free' modeling software, Sketchup. Ideally I would like Sketchup to be in that list.
