I found the Maya interface to be quite nice, but Blender is completely different. I suppose that I shouldn't really complain since it's free, and a lot of work has no doubt gone into it, but it seems crazy to me. I hope that there are really good tutorials, otherwise I don't see me learning Blender.
Ok, enough of my rambling about Blender. GameDev's coverage of the GDC seems quite cool this year. I particularly like the video interviews.
