Mathematica 7 Home Edition

Wolfram Research has released Mathematica 7 Home Edition, the latest version of its computation and visualization software. The company has taken features from the professional-level program, with functions that can be used for astronomy, stock market analysis, image manipulation and a variety of educational purposes for age groups ranging from preschool to college. The software can also be used for casual tasks such as creating art, designing buildings or even decorating Easter eggs.

The software provides symbolic and numeric computational capabilities, with access to data from scientific, geographic, financial and other fields. Users can configure chart presentations or other graphics options, or build custom interfaces to create interactive applications.

Mathematica 7 Home Edition can be used with Mac, Linux or 32-bit Windows systems, and can be purchased directly from the company for $300.

    Rather restrictive

    "Mathematica Home Edition is only available in the U.S. and Canada [!!!] and is not licensed for commercial, nonprofit, academic, or government use."

    Re: restrictive

    Well if you let it be bought anywhere, the terrorists will use it, and the Chinese and iranians will create nuclear weapons.

    Because we know the US is the worlds leader in math and science.

    And we know there's no way copies of this could get overseas. Certainly we know buyers would heed the restrictions and not p2p the software.
