I have been using blender for a long time and something that I see is that
it's power and features have grown greatly. This means that what it takes
to learn it has also grown greatly. It is a really hard program to learn.
On the other hand because of the number of great tutorials and sites to
help newbies, it is in many ways way easier to learn and it is much easier
these days to make great art after your first 6 months of use. I wish I
could have learned what I know now when I started.
The takeaway from this is that the way users support each other is the real
key to why Blender is great.
