Weight Painting - Maya 2011

I was using Maya 2011 and could not get used to the new weight painting system. To weight paint like how we used to in the previous Maya (2009 and before), just go into the Paint Skin Weights Tool options, change the "Normalize Weights" from "Post" (default) to "Interactive". A message box will pop up and ask if you want to normalize the weights, in which I prefer to pick 'No'. Normalize Weights is accessible from "Edit Smooth Skins option" if I need it later.
