Goodbye Quartz Composer
Dear Quartz Composer,
Where do I begin?
You’re amazing. You’re more than amazing. We had such great times together. You showed me so much, and we went places we never knew existed.
But something has been missing lately. We both know it. I’ve been avoiding this moment, but we both know it needs to be done. We’ve drifted apart and it’s time to break up.
I know we haven’t kept in touch. Christ, it’s been so long since we last spoke. The fact that I’m writing you this, instead of making a cool particle system fly through just shows how much has gone wrong in our relationship.
It’s not you. You’ve always been there for me, revealing new layers of depth and complexity during the long days and nights we were together. You’ve always been patient with me and taught me so much. You are really wonderful and special and no matter how many coding languages I get into, you will always be my first love.
Of course, we’ve had our fights when you insisted to do things your way and I tried to push you with too many skanky plugins. And sure, your iterators are slow and you haven’t been updated in years and let’s face it, you’ve developed some nasty bugs over time. But I never cared about any of that, because you are so truly beautiful and inspiring.
It’s cliche, but I hope we will still be friends. Maybe you’ll be there to help me prototype a shader some time. But as a development platform, I will have to say goodbye to you.
It’s been an amazing journey and thank you for everything that you’ve given to me. There will always be a special place in my heart just for you.
PS Please come by to pick up your stuff. I’ve left it all in this zip file: GoodbyeQuartzComposer
