Mathematica 3 is a magnificent program!   It's typesetting capabilities are
awesome.   The palettes are a great addition.   It's also extremely useful to
be able to create notebooks and edit cells from a program.    With buttons,
it's possible to respond in many ways to user input.   All cells can be given
names through the CellTags option, which allows programs to jump to fixed
places on the screen and alter the contents in response to a user's input.
You can also place OLE objects in notebooks, so previously recorded video
clips can be used.   This will be useful for help file development in
There are still some minor bugs and quirks to contend with, particularly when
cutting and pasting cells.    But as it now stands, the program is awesome.

Mathematica will continue to see substantial developments in the new future
particularly in the interface.   It's going to get even better when we have
drop down menus, radio buttons, dialog boxes, sliders and so on.
