I complain energically against these ideas. A computing algebra system of the complexity of Mathematica is very likely plagued with bugs. But these bugs should be documented and on my opinion Wolfram Res. should have an ftp-server for the download of bugfixes. If you buy something and there goes something wrong you also would like to get this repaired at the costs of the seller of it. I never could understand why software companies are allowed to take money for bug fixes (there is also a very well known operating system where the bug fixes cost a lot of money ;-)). -- Hendrik van Hees Phone: ++49 6159 71-2755 c/o GSI-Darmstadt SB 3.162 Fax: ++49 6159 71-2990 Planckstr. 1 mailto:h.vanhees at gsi.de D-64291 Darmstadt http://theory.gsi.de/~vanhees/vanhees.html
