Mainly just curious. I've been using Pure Data lately. It's been a while since I've used Max, so I've forgotten a lot of the objects (I know they aren't the same, but they share a few). I guess I don't want to talk about a whole lot, in case everyone goes 'uh....what?'
Havent messed around with Max/MSP for eons. For what I needed to do at the time (which didn't include controlling video), and also for the 3rd party/user library instrument collections. I eventually gravitated towards Reaktor. Which even these days I hardly ever use.
There's definitely something to be said about making your own home-brewed instruments. Especially for sound design and the sort.
