I really like this Blender-3dmax analogy.

Race cars and tractors have different "UI"s, but still they
share much of the nomenclatura.
Myself I started with 3dmax and now I'm sort of stuck
learning Blender. My fault; I've seen advanced blender users
work on the speed of light, I haven't taken enough time
getting used to the UI. This means there are two learning
curves; one for the UI and another for the 3D
terminology/methodology. Suppose the same applies to DTP.
<snip>During my studies I found that a meager 10% of any
application is used at any one time and the remaining
program is gone to waste. This is due to UI.</snip>
Maybe this is also due to the "one application who does it
all" syndrome ? (as opposed to "one application with really
determined area of interest").
-PS: in menu-intensive applications like 3dmax, photoshop
etc. to be in a productive environment, one tends to spread
out all those small windows/dialogs - and get yourself a
second or third monitor. Then you start to feel the need for
the concept of "workspaces" :-)
Good comments, instructive discussion
