I suppose that says it all. I'm looking for reactions, positive or negative, things to look for or look out for - whatever.

About this time last year I started thinking it was time to upgrade from ver 5 to 7 and then saw that 8 was going to be released Real Soon Now, so I decided to wait. It was released in late November, I think, with the same offer they always do: upgrade from any version for about 60% off the price. That ends next week, I think, but I decided to buy version 8. I just haven't made the time to install it yet. Too many other things going on.

Just an update to pass on that it seems they updated the policy. As of this morning instead of the upgrade offer I used, which expired yesterday, they're offering the upgrade for existing users for 40% off.

Yeah, they say you need a valid serial number from any version to upgrade but that's kind of the definition of upgrade!

I was looking at 8 for a while then got sidetracked by Plasticity. They are adding XNURBS to the Studio package ($300) which will be cheaper than the addon in Rhino ($400?).
I'm still keeping an eye out for Rhino 8 some day. I know I wouldn't be disappointed with it.
