The 'author' of tS is now the author of a book:

Since Microsoft now owns TS what should he do?
Rewrite TS from scratch? Work on something that isnt his anymore?
He writes a book! Cool I will read it! Use Ts.. yes! Why not! Still working..still usefull!
The workflow of Ts is about 10 years old and so is the code.. but still one has to adapt it! The modeler is still very good...and so are other parts..! The render engine is outdated.. so what! Get the files out of Ts and render outside!
What should Roman help us work on?
Blender in the form of Bfa ist interesting...so focus on that.. TS development very probably wont come back...

If you realy want to know what Roman is into..well here you go!
http://embodycorp.com/team.html

It was clear to me 10 years ago that Roman was into neuronal science! TS in its latest itineration 7 had a very neuron resembling approach..with the link editor.....!
That was also a big dispute..inside the TS followers group....!
One group..and Andi Kay was one of them wanted TS to continue..the way TS was before...like modeler side.....TS 6 like....the other group was strongly into link editing and coding...! Andy left back then...and turned to Cinema 4d...and cad software..!I was more biased to the artistic side...so more to the grafics oriented way TS did things...so very modeler side biased...

you dont have to take me that seroiusly :)
I have no idea what is possible and what not. I would only like to know one thing - if Roman or some of the developers tried to recover the tS code from MS.

Nope! I doubt it they ever would! The 3d market itself is declining..isnt doing all to well! Very niche market! He has done what probably was best..sell the whole thing!
Alias is thiscbig because they sell cad for the industry! Not because of Max or Maya!

you are right... but its something they had for 20 years or so... not all is really about business. I cant imagine myself having some project or something for that long, being part of my life and investing so much time into it and then just give it up.
