For me it’s not laziness anyway, I came from a job where I had and used Maya 6 (loved Maya despite some UI quirks and hidden-menus) to a job where I didn’t, but tried Blender – after a lot of attempts, I couldn’t figure out how to do the simplest things in Blender either and the documentation sucked (at least at the time, haven’t looked at it in a year or so). I gave up on it and am using Swft3D meanwhile, but would like to give Blender a second chance if I could figure out the workflow. I would like to get good at Blender someday, if you have any good tutorial links, please post them.

I needed to model something real quick one time, but the only software I
could find at the time that was free was Blender. I knew it was gonna be
ugly when it prompted me to install Python.
As a guy who has only ever really used 3DS Max, after I launched Blender I
was lost. Couldn't do even the simplest of things. I gave up in short
order and ended up using 3DS Max 2010 trial version.
I guess that probably says more about me, than about Blender :-/
