Hi, I have not used Mathematica in a long time, but am about to get back into it. In it's first few versions (the only ones I have used) the Mac version was by far more polished, had more features, and was much stabler than its Windows counterpart (well, for everything I wanted to do, which was a lot). Such was the case for quite a few other programs at the time, including Microsoft's own cash caws, Excel and Word. Well, things changed for the Office suite- The Windows versions of Excel and Word have been "ahead" of the Mac versions for years (since v.5 of Excel). What about Mathematica? On which OS is it "ahead" by and large /these/ days? How does its release/update history compare on the two platforms? The computer I will load this onto runs Mac OS 10.5.2, WinXP sp3, and of course Unix. Many, many thanks in advance. Dave
