The student edition of Mathematica isn't bad. I want to buy it this summer.
I'll probably also buy myself the upgrade to the full version not long

The biggest question is do I commit to forever using linux, or do I commit
to buying and maintaining a nice Mac forever.
I wonder how well Mathematica 4.1 would run on my 8100...
