I guess I'm out of the loop, what happened to the SDNA that caused the
sudden issue? I thought it was caused by a lack of foresight back in
the infant days of blender. Which doesn't sound like Ton at all.

Anyone want to enlighten me on the specifics?

Windows: A 64-bit service pack to a 32-bit extension and GUI shell to
a 16-bit patch to an 8-bit operating system originally coded for a
4-bit microprocessor and sold by a 2-bit company that can't stand one
bit of competition.
