It's not about user friendly versus non-userfriendly. It is about
choosing who your users are, then being friendly to them. For the most
part, any such application is going to require significant commitment to
learning them, and I don't see any good way around having such
requirements. Granted, such requirements are what everyone needs.
Others need simple. And for them there are other programs, where one of
the greatest features is they cut out what is unlikely to be needed, or
make it a seperate program (re, the bryce/poser suit).
