This may not be the best place for this post. Moderators, please move it to the appropriate location.

Being new to Max, I'm curious just how different Max is from Pd.
Max looks much more polished. Does Pd have any capabilities that Max doesn't?

I use Pd, never have used MAX. Though when I see images online, I agree MAX looks more polished.

That's one thing I would like to see more in Pd, updated GUI, snapping to grid, etc. Maybe these things have been developed and I haven't seen them.

Otherwise, I have no idea what the primary differences are.

A book on PD was just released- I think from Pragmatic Publishers.

I haven't used PD myself, and have used Max just a little. Would love to
spend a lot more time with it. I'm amazed at the attractive UIs that some people come up with though.
