Blender is a free open source modeling and (i think) animation program, i'm not sure how many of you know of it, or even use it, but....

can it pair with wowmodelviewer to animate things?

The 2 programs are very different. One is a viewer, one is an editor. One pre-renders everything, one renders everything in real time. Etc.

In regards to an editor, its decent for being free however I'd prefer pretty much any other 3d editor program over it from Bryce 3D to Rhino to Milkshape to Lightwave. From what I've seen thus far.. most linux based apps have *horrible* GUI's.

Well, there's a script out there to import WoW Models straight into 3ds max, so if you're creating your own animations that's probably the best way to go, that way you don't have to worry about rerigging all the bones. If you don't have the budget for that kind of program, you could always download the trial, import the model, then export it to something usable by Maya, which has a completely free non-commercial download. Or, you could always just use GMax.
Don't think animation will be easy though, 3d programs tend to be very complex and take a while to learn even the basics.
