Re: Mathematica for NeXT, Unbundled Price

[There are some responses to a previous posting about the new
NeXT computers and the bundling of Mathematica. --smc]


Mathematica continues to be bundled with the 2.0 operating system for the
NeXT for educational purchases.  Only if you buy outside a university are
you missing Mathematica. The WRI 2.0 kernel will come with the NeXT 2.0
OS.

University buyers (all higher ed accounts) still get Mathematica free when they
buy a NeXT.  The only thing that has changed is business accounts will have to
pay for it.

	Mathematica is fully bundled and supported for Universities. This is, 
	of course, if you are upgrading to the extended version of OS 2.0.
