We all know that Ton is the unbelievable extraordinary and polite man, and
I think I sometimes should learn from him, how to talk with those
'strangers' who do not appreciate Open Source etc. Best example of this
super-nice reaction was sent few emails before.
But I'm going to say something about different thing:
Your comment Ichthyo is just nailing the situation I think. I share your
imagination in that matter and it perfectly match everything I observe. I
liked it so much, that I will forward it to my best students. I really love
the picture you've portrayed. So funny and nice!
Thank you, and as always, LONG LIVE BLENDER!!!

> some "official" entity, which has status and reputation. This producer

> I pay for it, thus the producer has an natural interest to "care" for my

> sometimes even cooperate with the other inhabitants.
> And when something doesn't work for us, we'll fix it.
> Needless to say, when the inhabitants of those two sister worlds meet,
> they glare at each other's "strange habits" with bewilderment.
