Andrew, I used to be one of those folks, Until Matrix version 4
the new interactive tools are very much like using traditional tools
in the way you can change parameters, you move a slider and settings
change size, kinda like using a file on wax or metal. I know this is
a stretch but using the tools you will understand what I mean.
The nice thing about Matrix is everything in Rhinoceros is there and
it can be used to whatever extent you are willing to push, but for
certain time consuming and tedious tasks the Matrix tools are great.
I think they lead to more creativity because of how easy it is to
change things in both gross and fine details.
