It's certainly 'deceptive' marketing that's for sure. No idea how many have 
been sold, I've seen a couple of posts saying they bought it and thought it 
was great but I'm guessing those are fake posts made by the very same chap 
behind the scam using AltNicks; I've not been able to find an honest review 
or product purchase, if they're on the 'Net they're buried under the 
thousands of articles he's spammed everywhere.

Great to hear about the kids getting into Blender even if it was from a 
'sideways' (indirect) direction! I've never quite 'got' SketchUp my self 
because of the push/pull thing, heh.
