Yes. It's important to answer rumours using rumours.

There's a prof who told me that she couldn't teach Pd, and it was because 
of its security holes. Then she also told me that Pd doesn't have any 
video support. After that she stopped answering emails.

I also heard that MAX was so bad, there's a classroom where they had to 
ban Pd to ensure that it looked like buying MAX licenses had been a good 

Much of MAX's popularity is due to vendor lock-in after cheap licenses had 
been dumped on students who happened to be taking courses that happened to 
require MAX.

And of course, I mean MAX the software, not Max Neupert. ;)
