I'm in the same boat.  I used 3D Studio DOS since version 2.0 (~1992) and switched to Max when it
came out in '96.  But i don't have any Win32 boxes at home either so i no longer run Max (excluding
an Alpha which can boot NT but very rarely does.)

I'm trying to get the hang of Maya these days but i no longer do any 3D work professionally so it's
hard to justify the time.  I do miss it though.  I don't miss dealing with clients however.
