[Bf-education] Migrating from 3D Studio Max to Blender, at what cost?

Currently our designers are using 3D studio max to create and render high
profile content.
Because of 3D studio max's closed nature we cannot optimize our rendering
process enough
which results in unhappy customers.

If we had the ability to render on multiple machines, preferably Linux, we
could change this
so we are currently investigating a possible migration to Blender.

Can someone answer the following questions for us:

 - How steep is the learning curve coming from 3D studio max and going to
 - The designers design buildings and environments, is Blender usable for
this type of scenario
 - Can we automate the rendering process... ie are there command line tools
to render in batch
 - Why would you advice to use Blender and why would you advise against it

Thank you
