: All of Maple, Mathematica, and Matlab (I think) are available for linux,

: as is Reduce. These are, of course, commercial. maxima is `available',

: but it is old, and it is commercial in that you have to send in your

Here's a portion of my original post:

-------------------------------------------

MATLAB requires the Linux '95 V1.2 kernel configured to support ELF

binaries. Detailed system requirements are available on The MathWorks FTP

server:

ftp.mathworks.com:/pub/tech-support/outgoing/linux/readme.lnx

MATLAB 4.2c for Linux is available on The MathWorks CD-ROM Volume V, along

with the images for the other supported Unix platforms. CD-ROM is currently

the only medium for delivering the Linux release. If you are an existing

Unix customer and you want to run MATLAB for Linux, please contact your sales

representative for licensing options and to request Volume V.
