I said in a post to the group a few months back that the much lamented
printed Wolfram manual was superb, and that it had clearly taken
enormous effort and planning to produce. My message was ridiculed by
one regular contributer but I still feel I was right.
Wolfram really need to listen to their fan-base, if I can put it like
that. We know that Wolfram read these posts.
Come on guys, you know it makes sense. Publish the manual that
Mathematica deserves !
