[2002-10-28] Blender Has Been Freed!

I know this is old news now, but that does not mean that I am not excited about it: my favourite free 3D modelling tool Blender has finally been freed after a spirited effort by people from around the world who just could not bear to see it die after the company that owned it (NaN) went bankrupt. NaN (“Not a Number”) shareholders agreed to allow Blender to be released as completely free (with the source code) software only if they could get 100,000 euros for it. The campaign led by Ton Roosendaal, the creator of Blender, has managed to raise this amount - and more - and this darling of a tool is now completely FREE!

Yes, I did contribute my bit to the effort, even though it meant selling my soul to the horrible PayPal!
