The beta was nice while it lasted, and I was certainly happy it lasted
so long.  The price, after the beta period, was attractive as well. 
I had a client that used Rhino, and they let me use a license for
playing around.  That was pretty cool.  V2.0 is most excellent, what
I've been able to use of it.  Since I no longer run any Windows
machines, it's been tough to use it.  :)

That's mostly what I used MAX for.  Model in Rhino, import into MAX,
texture and render.  I didn't, and still don't, do much animation.
