Getting my new comp today. Gateway i5, 8gig, 1Tbite, and........ windows 8
I've heard windows 8 is worse then vista, I'll be dropping my old HDD in to the new comp, and it has W7 on it. Not sure if I want to try to play musical windows to get W7 on the main new drive and W8 on the archive old drive.
I am going to put all my grafics apps and content on the same partition seperate from windows. I did this on this old comp and seems to have fewer issues with content and apps.
Bad news is Carrara 8.5 is out, and DAZ has lost their ever loving minds. $285 for a point 5 update that does little more than add triax; genesis, DSON, DUF, compatability. As a comparesin the C7-C8 upgrade was only $200. No I wont be getting it, yes that does mean sacrficing 2 years worth of work with the C8.5 beta. Even having to sacrfice 2 years of work does not make a .5 update worth $285.
I fully expect the upgrade cost Carrara 9 to be more then carrara cost to begin with. I'm figuring $570 for the upgrade. Guess DAZ thinks they have 3DSmax, or Maya on thier hands
Of coarse people are jumping on the short term, if you are qulified, and in the Pclub $85.50 sale price. If you can get that price to come up in your cart on check out. What floors me is people seeing they aren't getting all or the full discounts, and buying it any way.
What really boggles my mind is I, I wasn't pesimistic enough on the pricing. Thing is I know a bunch of people that need to get in on this big crow pie I have for them. All those people that argued with me and said DAZ would never charge as much as $160 for a .5 update, when I said as much a long, long time ago. Yet there they are, griping about the price, griping about the lacking features, and buying it anyway, I just don't get it.
