Windows Yes, the Windows 8 rumour mill is really spinning up now. This time around though, they're not really rumours, since the information is coming from Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrott, long-time Microsoft enthusiasts with loads of insider access. They've got a bunch of screenshots showing a work in progress of... A ribbon in Explorer. And yes, it looks just as bad as it sounds.

There is a new interface? I haven't noticed any changes in a few years now. But I have only been dipping in and out of blender and #! may well have an old version.

Yeah, fairly recently they made the interface better-looking, made some frequently used functionality more discoverable and easier to access by putting it in a panel on the left, integrated search in the menus... It takes a while to get used to after playing with the old version, but all in all I think it's an improvement.

I also am a casual user of Blender, but the old interface surprised me by how quickly one learns it vs how complicated it looked. Only took me a few weeks to understand the general UI, didn't expect that.

The biggest problem I have is most of the tutorials are in video form and I have a terrible internet connection that hates youtube with a passion.

I hate video tutorials, but for other reasons, and managed to find some textual doc anyway... The "noob to pro" series especially help greatly.
