Maya vs Houdini FX Answered

I have been wanting to get a animation software for some time now, my question is which one should I get?

I want to work with live action movies and I really like the crowd effect, I know Houdini has a crowd built into it, but Maya has plugins for crowds, I can't change my computer to linux or windows so Goleam is not a option.

Which one is better for live action movies?

Which one is easier to use?

Which crowd is better?

Please comment and give some me answers.
