I would like to cast a vote in favor of TeXmacs also. I
agree that if one's only purpose is to have a "GUI" for
Maxima, TeXmacs is heavyweight. However, most of the time I
want to include my Maxima results in a document, and TeXmacs
is unbeatable for that. Especially if you use it for
writing technical documents in general.
Finally, TeXmacs is under constant development. Robert, I
don't know what version you've tried, but the stability is
continually improving. I use TeXmacs all the time on
Solaris (I stay at the latest version), and stability is not
one of my complaints.
