sorry it was not my intention to force you to do what you don't really
want. I only thought it would be a good idea to have a unique name and
it wold help Maxima to get more popular. Since somebody wrote on the
frond page: "We welcome suggestions and contributions from the
community of Maxima users." I did it so. So if there are no interest
to rename Maxima, it would be ok for me. I can live with this name,
since I live with them for about 7 years.
Thank you for this nice piece of software. I love to use Maxima and do
recommend it all people who ask me about mathematical software.
Sorry if i did annoying somebody with my suggestion it was not my intention.
So have a nice day.
PS.: Here is an practice sheet (German) it is for fricas, there are no
words like math, algebra, cas ... .There are only exercises and
descriptions of them:
I could only find this document because fricas has a unique name.
