May be, but then, Max almost always was in advance of Pd as far as
issues like usability are concerned, and still Pd was popular.
Probably the new Max will make some people change their minds again,
but in general I believe, both Pd and Max can coexist quite well and
even learn from each other. And Max will never beat Pd's price.
