Excited to see that I made the list with Matrix Eater! The world waits for me to fix up the new one enough to actually release it. At my current rate it will have to be Matrix Eater Reforged by the time it releases.
Matrix Eater is a great 3D modeling program well-known by artists. Glad to see that it's still in the process of updating.
