And that will be it's downfall!

I know what what Blenders UI is designed for. However not too many
people get religious about learning a UI, which is the only way you
will ever learn Blenders UI. This is why although Blender has a cult
following, it will never grow into a tool that the mainstream world
knows about, or for that matter cares about.

I have been using Blender on and off for almost a year and i still
cannot get comfortable with the UI. For instance adding a material to
a object involves multiple steps between multiple windows (WHAT!). Go
take a look at SketchUp's UI and you will see how the future will
look. Even 3DS or Maya is easier to learn that Blender.
