If you don't know much about Blender how do you know 3dsmax is better?
Can you name any features that 3dsmax has that Blender doesn't?
It's true that Blender's interface has a steep learning curve (maybe because it's based largely on hotkeys) however, once learned it's much faster that 3dsmax's menu based system.
Blender is extensible in Python, meaning if you do
actually find that Bender lacks a feature you need you can write a script for it in Python!
