One of the most popular open-source, 3D graphics creation programs, Blender, has arrived in the Microsoft Store on Windows 10. Blender is used by 3D graphic designers, offering up features that allow for modelling, sculpting, rigging, 3D and 2D animation, and more. It is created and published by the Blender Foundation.
The Blender Foundation has made the software available directly from the Microsoft Store, making the process of installing and updating the software much simpler. It offers the same features as if you were to download it from the Blender website directly.
Pablo Vazquez, an artist at the Blender Institute, confirmed the release on the Microsoft Store, saying that it has been done to offer another avenue of distributing the software:
Yes this is legit. We uploaded it as just another way to get Blender (together with Steam and blender dot org).

What do you think to Blender’s release on the Microsoft Store? Will you switch to the Store-provided version for ease of updating?
