buntfu.com: Recently I've been thinking about the comments made a while back by Mark Shuttleworth that he wants to push the linux interface to be on par with Apple's Mac OS X.

linuxhaxor.net: Blender is not only the best free and open source choice but also rivals all commercial 3d applications out there.
