I just saw a bunch of new 2.8 tutorial videos pop up on YouTube, including this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILqOWe3zAbk
Around 0:20 time mark, the guy mentions the possibility of switching selection to right click, saying it’s “arguably better for your health”. I think we all know that there is absolutely no evidence to support that. Given the long lasting stigma Blender has in the industry due to really poor usability from the large part caused by really bad input mapping, I don’t think it’s appropriate to pour more oil into the flames if we want 2.8 release to change that. So much effort has been spent on making 2.8 usability on par with other software, so I don’t think it’s a good idea to sabotage it by mentioning right click select ever again.
Oldschool Blender users who can’t adapt will know where to find it and how to turn it on, but we should definitely avoid new users doing things like this. And especially avoid any nonsensical suggestions or implications that right click select has any advantages, since there is really no evidence to support that whatsoever.
Embarrassing opinions like that one really take away from Blender’s credibility, especially when spoken through Blender’s official channels.
