An analogy is used to simplify a point so it can be seen more clearly, or from a different perspective. An analogy is never meant to encompass every nuance of the subject matter it is reflecting. You are intelligent enough to get the point, but I fear even if I came up with a near perfect analogy, you would overlook the lesson, because you desire not to hear it, and instead focus on some aspect that isn't an exact equivalency. In essence some people speak different languages even when they are speaking in the same one. This also may not make sense to you.Do you have to use a completely different class for that?
it´s by no means at all equivalent to software comparison where software comparison it inevitable and in many cases useful when talking about upgrading..and the reasons therefore.
If you refer to coFfee arguments and complaints between brands etc and cars, etc..and compare that with 3D related software in a 3D thread..then I think you are stretching your analogy to far really, just to enforce a point that you can´t discuss anything else.
Now..for example, How would the case of someone argueing to get a flashlight instead of making candles be equivalent to a case of a description where Lightwaves cpu needs to be gpu, and a ellaboration on that with proof of the GPU doing the renders faster, by referencing to octane or blender?
It´s not appliable at all, there´s more context and detail to such 3D discussion than you ever can extract from that simplifed and completly different class case reference of a flashlight and candlemaking argument, it just doesnt work.
Nothing you say on the forum is invalid in your own eyes, so to you it doesn't matter that blender makes up most of your recent conversation on a Lightwave forum. You are more comfortable here than on the blender forums, so you bring the blender forum to us. I think you should be free to speak here, but also respectful of what software the forum is for, and that lots of blender talk creates clutter that has to be read through to find answers to questions about LW. The blender answers can be found on the blender forums for those who are interested.
If Lightwave is a dead software, then the archives of these forums may be the only way to get an answer to some questions in the future. Imagine having to read through tons of tips for another software and the following arguments about software, just to find that one post, where a guy who knows enough about Lightwave tells you how to do it in Lightwave rather than the oh so helpful "better way" in a app your are not using.
