Here is a text rendition of the content of that webpage. http://www.wolfram.com/support/Systems/Student/Differences.html The main differences between Student and the Professional version of Mathematica are in price (the Student version is a lot cheaper), licensing (you must be enrolled as a full-time student to legally use the Student version), and other features that do not affect the software. The only differences in the software itself are: * The MathLink Developer's Kit is not included with the Student version. You can still use MathLink applications, but you will need to get the MathLink Developer's Kit if you want to write MathLink applications of your own. Technical support is not available for MathLink developement. * There are several differences which identify the software as a Student version. For example, the value of $Version is different, the startup screen is different, and in printed output, the text "Mathematica for Students" is displayed at the bottom of every page. Outside of the software itself, there are several other important differences between Student and the Professional version of Mathematica: * The Student version can only be used legally by full-time students, and can only be used on a single computer. * Printed versions of the books The Mathematica Book, Third Edition and Mathematica 3.0 Standard Package Guide are not included. (Electronic versions of these books are included in the Help Browser.) * Technical support for non-installation questions is available via the moderated Student Support Forum. http://www.wolfram.com/student-support/ -- P.J.
