Reply to: RE>[mg5123] mathematica 3.0 windows Mathematica 3 is a magnificent program! It's typesetting capabilities are awesome. The palettes are a great addition. It's also extremely useful to be able to create notebooks and edit cells from a program. With buttons, it's possible to respond in many ways to user input. All cells can be given names through the CellTags option, which allows programs to jump to fixed places on the screen and alter the contents in response to a user's input. You can also place OLE objects in notebooks, so previously recorded video clips can be used. This will be useful for help file development in particular. There are still some minor bugs and quirks to contend with, particularly when cutting and pasting cells. But as it now stands, the program is awesome. Mathematica will continue to see substantial developments in the new future particularly in the interface. It's going to get even better when we have drop down menus, radio buttons, dialog boxes, sliders and so on.
