Hello-- My research lab will soon obtain our first copy of Mathematica. However, we are unsure of which platform to run the program on-- we have available a Macintosh 7100/66 and a Sun Ultra 1/140. I know that my Sun is faster than the Mac (looked at the speed comparison web page), but I'm not very familiar with how the program feels on the two platforms. If anyone could offer opinions regarding, for example, how user-friendly the two interfaces are, I'd greatly appreciate it. All opinions are welcome. Thank you. -- Jim Mashek mashek at nwu.edu ==== [MESSAGE SEPARATOR] ====
