Pixar RenderMan

These are all renderers based on Reyes rendering algorithms.
Some of these are compliant with renderman standards.
Anyone had any experience with any of these render engines?

With Pixar RenderMan everything is clear it is the industry standard used for most of the produced movies.

I'm more interested in the open source products like Pixie, Aqsis and JrMan.
What functions do they have that renderman has and what they lack?
