Every mention of Lightwave 8, every revelation of another feature to come in Lightwave 8, has the same effect as ringing a bell in front of Pavlov's dogs (http://www.bartleby.com/59/17/pavlovsdogs.html).

It instantly causes everyone's salivary glands to become overactive. The drooling starts immediately.

A thread that speculates that Lightwave 8 will be "coming soon" instantly gets almost 1000 hits.

The list of users currently online shows hundreds of people lurking around in the forum, hoping to get a another snippit of information to tease themselves with.

"Please, please," people say, "tell me another feature that will be in Lightwave 8!". Pavlov's bell starts ringing in their heads.

Without Pavlov's research, marketing as we know it today wouldn't exist.

Not everyone, some people start snarling and growling and go directly into an attack mode.

not everyone...

some of us might be unemployed and can't afford to upgrade to 8. I can wait for as long as it takes me to get a job and some spare funds. It is, howerver, unfortunate that I'll miss the DFX+ deal.
