I ran the Benchmark.m timing test for Mma v 2.1, performed in a 15MB partition on a Macintosh II fx, System 7.0.1, with 21 MB virtual memory & 32 bit addressing, You may obtain this and other Benchmark.m results from otter.stanford.edu. It would be helpful if some of you who have v 2.1 on other machines could run /ftp/mma/misc/benchmark2.0.m and send the results to me at: xinwei at jessica.stanford.edu. By the way, there's a more interesting comparative review by Barry Simon in the most recent Computers & Mathematics column in the AMS Notices (Sep 92, v 39 # 7), of Mma 2.0 for DOS & Windows, Maple V, Derive, Reduce.
