x86 Assembler Recommendations

Here is the summary of suggestions that I've received:

MASM32 (www.masm32.com) - geared toward 32 bit environments?
WASM (Open Watcom) - not as full featured as MASM or TASM but usable?
Arrow assember
AS (http://john.ccac.rwth-aachen.de:8000/as/index.html)
RASM86 (Digital Research .. the 'other' DOS)

I'll be scanning eBay for TASM or older MASMs for a bit, and looking at
the others to see what might work. Being a newbie I'm a little hesitant
to experiment with anything but the gold standard (okay, maybe not
gold), so TASM and MASM are higher up on my list.

Another possibility is finding a 6.x version of MASM on DevNet CDs. At
work I do all of my programming in a Linux environment, so we don't have
DevNet CDs just laying around ...

Thanks again,
