Actually It's 20 years. Mathematica is essentially a programming language with thousands of functions, so there is practically no limit to what can be done with it. WRI can't possibly put everything into it. You should see Mathematica as a very sophisticated toolbox, which can be used to develop more specialized applications. This is the job of independent developers or yourself. In this past 20 years several professionally made packages have been developed by 3rd parties, mostly costing hundreds (or thousands) of dollars.Mr. Park's packages are a notable and very welcome exception. We are lucky to have independent developers, like Mr. Park, providing high quality packages and great customer service at a very reasonable cost.
