- Blender is light weight and runs very fast. It does not take up much computer resources like many 3D packages.
- File size is extremely small. Once saving your project, it will become obvious that these files are very small in comparison to competitors.
- Blender operates on many operating systems including Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD & Solaris (i am not sure if blender 2.5x is available for Solaris, it seems older versions where)
- Blender is Open Source Software, meaning it is completely free to download and use, even for commercial use (The source code may even be modified to have the software perform to your requirements).
- Blender is a portable software, meaning it does not physically need be installed on your computer to work. This is made possible as the software is saved inside a folder where it may be run from. Therefore, if you are using an other computer, all you need to do is move the folder on the desktop and run the software from there.
