My days of feeling special are over...

Being a long-time user of SketchUp has always made me feel like I was a step above the common rabble. Then last month @last Software was bought by Google. What was going to happen to my most important app? And to my self-esteem?

Big doings. Google is giving SketchUp away for free! (Windows version, Mac coming soon.) Now any Tom Dick or Harry can be as cool as me. Well, not quite. The Pro version will still do a few things that the free version doesn't.

The big Google conquest-of-the-Galaxy plan is still mysterious and opaque, but this is surely a part of it.

(Here's what the SketchUp crew themselves have to say.)
