This seems to run as a general response to software that challenges
another with a major market share/user base, and particularly free
software like blender and the gimp.  I myself was sceptical of both of
those projects earlier on due to prior experience with Maya and
Photoshop.  Many who use these professionally or regularly (I did not)
are much more apt to complain to others; for example, a teacher to his
students, a friend to friends.
