    I dread new software. Software has been solved. All new software does is break old, working software.

    More after the fact but when AlphaFold2 got it's public release I was fricking hype.
    I'm doing a PhD wherein a portion was structural biology for an enzyme that doesn't have a good resolution x-ray crystallography structure and AlphaFold came out right at the perfect time for me to work on it from home during COVID disruptions.

    whenever blender untardified its UI. It's actually usable now. I fr learned how to fly a fricking gd helicopter faster than I did blender's old UI, and I even had college courses on 3D modeling as part of a degree I was studying for. Yes, I really did learn how to fly a whole ass helicopter, with zero experience in aviation besides video games, in significantly less time than for blender's old UI. Technically in infinity less time, because I kept giving up old blender's old UI and never really got anywhere.

    Proton was another.

    Everything else is too expensive for me to care and I don't pirate because I don't want keyloggers or to become part of illegal botnet shit

        bhut I done did git good! Been messing with 3DS Max since age 17 (back when I used to pirate), and C4D a little in college, making all sorts of models, animating them and texturing them. It ain't exactly Disney/Pixar level shit but it's functional. Probably could get hired for making children's 3D animated shows like paw patrol. A lot of the tools are intuitive enough that when I learned one, I usually have a good idea of how to use another or at-least a good idea where to dig around for whatever I'm looking for, and usually don't need to search google. In old blender? Nah frick that I had to frickn look up help just to do the most basic shit. I mean really basic. I still have to look up stuff once in a while with blender 4 but it's so much better than it used to be. Character facial animation is still kinda a cluster frick tho without paid plugins last I saw (blender 3)

        ngl tho that video is pretty based

        too bad 100% of the tutorials are still in their default moronic control scheme and if you use the actual industry standard one you have to learn everything yourselt and it still operates in moronic ways most of the time. I found Blender to be just a waste of time

        I don't look up tutorials much so I wouldn't know. Usually when I look up something, it is where to find a tool or an equivalent. I did notice a lot of them are for old versions of blender, but I find if I slap a "4" in the search query, it usually brings up for version 4.x.x. But that's for finding tools in the UI and not full blown tutorials.

    I get excited when I see a cool open-source project, I rarely use them but I enjoy seeing constant innovation. I'm still avidly keeping up with Wayland's development for the day I'll finally convert.

    Being "excited" for a launch of anything I didn't personally work on would require me to allow my feelings to be controlled by advertising, a habit I broke along time ago like every adult should.

    I'm always exicited for ReactOS updates, appreciate the fact that Guix OS exists and smile whenever yt-dlp -U works. I also have emacs's git commits in my rss, with time more software will make there (as I've started watching the progress of development recently).

    And a couple of distros more that I can't remember
