firstly, no i had not updated to the windows 10 creator update, because it didnt even existed back then, no idea why you make a statement like that, which doesnt even matter to this case
secondly, of course there is no validity for other softwares you can always point that out, even when windows 10 has a compatibility mode for some reason, still i have use sketchup 8 on windows 7, xp, windows 10 and linux of course, not windows vista though, not a preferred os,
still i stand to my words, it still runs better on linux, you NEED to use linux version to know that, which i doubt you have, i have used it and the windows version and i can tell the difference, better.
moving on, i never once compared the resource management of windows 10 and w7 and never once i said windows 10 uses more resources than windows 7, i compared it with linux, why are you picking things which i never even said
Blender is more reliable than sketchup any day if you talk about the reliability of open source softwares, thinking open source is bad is really a petty thought..
also hope you read the names i gave, 3d rad and unity are not even open source, they also made by serious companies,
commercial software by a commercial company,
google owned sketchup once, they made a free version commercial use ready, or are you implying trimble somehow is a more serious and commercial company than google...
and yes hobby stuff is great, all artists do hobby "stuff" its helps you train, all these game designers make free games for mobile platforms, the question is will you work for free? if no Employer pays you,
why not, all independent artists do that, coming back to open source thats how open source works too they work for free and they still have a living
its not nonsense, sketchup being a 'commercial' software gets a hard time by so called free "open source softwares",
and yes i know it is used for other fields as well, but by architecture i didnt meant, the architecture 'field', i meant it being non sculpting software, no need to explain on that..
A Dam* 695 usd price tag for commercial use, makes the no commercial one worthless,
i dont think you will understand what i am even trying to imply here, because you are need to be more ready to understands someone else's point of view
also about my graphics card does just fine i know its capabilities, even the output speed is just fine, never once mentioned sketchup runs slow....
