the only thing that seems put of place is #2.
the fact that "02: Pixologic ZBrush Continues Prevalence", which is essentially saying “Zbrush still exists” is the second most important thing to happen for CG in 2005? Number 1 is an obvious choice… but saying that a small company happens to be doing pretty well is more important than Adobe buying Macromedia?
Thats just ridiculous, bordering retarded. Both Adobe and Macromedia supply ‘single instance’ software worldwide. There is no Photoshop replacement and there is no Flash replacement. For these companies to merge is arguably much more important than even Alias and Autodesk becoming one, seeing as there as other software packages with similar features and functionality.
If thats how people actually voted… then this isn’t the professional forum that it is advertised as. It’s just a group of software zealots.
