That's what I'm doing now... I've created several projects for myself... 
and am learning the system. So far, I like Blender a lot. I do find the 
interface to be rather unrefined in some ways, but overall, I like it.

I agree wholeheartedly.

In any case, my post was sort of a "Hello World" :). I'm working at 
learning enough to where I can be more usefull to the development and 
put some of my skills to use.
