In a conversation with Brian Gillespie of McNeel regarding issues related to plug-ins for older versions of Rhinoceros, he pointed me to this page. Although McNeel stopped distributing Rhino 2.0 on 31-Dec-2002, Scott tells me that there are many people using Rhino 2.0 in active development.
One statement on the above mentioned page caught my attention.
“There is no need to upgrade to 3.0 immediately. Rhino 2.0 users are welcome to continue using 2.0 as long as they like.”
I wonder how many software vendors are ready to make this kind of a statement, me including. I could learn a few things from McNeel. McNeel is truly a user friendly company and I hope they stay that way.
