XSI is just an upgrade to SoftImage, right. It's made by the same company. Why didnt they just go with SoftImage 1, 2, 3.....etc?

Having said all this xsi has some really cool features that would be very welcome in Maya such as:

coloured joint skin weights to show the weight mix on all points.
the skin weighting colouds are amazing! in both XSI and MAX, its a shame maya doesnt have it theres also enveloping, which a lot of people dnt like, but shud still be there for those like me

oooooh sumthing else thats amazing about XSI, the RTA and the whole crowd simulation, its like massive but only cheaper

but apart from that, Maya kicks more ass than XSI does

no matter what software they use, it will depend upon the artist who uses the software, let it be maya let it be wings 3d,,, there are experts in every software, some artists will be able to create something better in one software than the other,,,, that does not mean that one software is better than the other... its the person's skills
