I couldn’t agree more with everything you said.
I really wanted to try out 2.8 but man some things are so weird and I have used the majority of 3D software out there. Max, Maya, Cinema, modo, the transition to blender seems really weird to me.
It’s like you said, the software is a puzzle in so many things and especially keybinds which I heavily rely on.
Blender is the only software that I have really tried to learn but I am still frustrated by so many things, as the article states.
