Added a note about films because I watched that Sintel short film created with Blender, which was in some areas even better than the work Pixar and Dreamworks are putting out commercially.

Website seems to have changed.

I want to REALLY download this to make some soft terrains and backgrounds...... But i cant because the site has changed and now it asks me what system I am running and the budget I have available to spend.... I would like this to be updated... So as for now, unfortunately, thumbs down. Please update as necessary and I will be happy to review the program further. :)
