No denying that we all do. But I came mostly looking to see whether this person had my experience (the "I'm not crazy" factor), and with luck, what he looked at next (the "what might work for me" factor). Since we felt the same way about one product, maybe this thread would yield insights about where he went next. Sure, but your paragraph above is exactly what I described - requiring someone to justify their preference. You called his personal preference "ridiculous" just now, man. You're projecting an expectation for others to agree on him. He expressed no expectation. He didn't even say "amiright?" And then the thread developed into implying that if someone doesn't like the Helix and finds it to be unduly time consuming or distracting, then there's something wrong with them. After all, how can they have time to post here, if they claim they don't have time to 'learn a modeler?' And again, I did say the Helix interface wasn't for me, and I was immediately asked whether I like something more "limited" or "traditional" instead.
