I used to support Maya back in the day and the orientation of the software is Y up. For some of our other software packages, the orientation is Z up. During my morning coffee run, the conversation came up with with one of our Maya Developers [Julia P.] and she told me why and it totally makes sense....
If you are an Artist, the image will be on an easel, therefore, Y is up.
If you are an Engineer/Architect, you are working on a drafting table so Z is up.
Here are some screen captures of our software packages and their X,Y,Z orientation.
Personally, I haven't had a lot of Blue Screen of Death [BSOD] on Windows. In fact, it is a rarity on Windows if your system is protected with the latest Anti-Virus software, moderate UAC controls, and Malware removal software is used.
This was the first time a BSOD happened in any of our Webinars so it is something we will add to the Webinar process so that we can recover quickly. For those who attended, I appreciate your understanding.
