Who could have forseen that a forum post along the lines of ‘should I use product X or product Y’ could have gone badly? Those usually go so well…

Reminder: Please keep it civil if you don't want your lively debate to get locked down. Lookin' at you, Daryl.

Just to clarify: SideFX and Redshift (and other renderers as well) have a friendly partnership. We work well together and support each others efforts. Juanjo and I aren't meeting up for tea and crumpets on the daily and we don't share code but I do e-mail him once a month when we update our production build and they try to sync up on that when they do their next release. Syncing up on production builds is as good as we've got right now.
