Only saying because it's been like this for many images on this thread but I just thought the link expired gets expired after certain period of time.

My TWM setup on slackware-current, nothing special really, just the desktop I use when I'm working on something(paper, story, code, etc.) no frills, no bells and whistles, just a bunch of xterms, and an xclock.

Nah, it works fine here.

Anyway, perhaps customize.org works: http://customize.org/screenshots/86426

Proprietary mathematical software is the ultimate joke. Did you know that the Riemann hypothesis is true? Trust me. I can't show you the proof, obviously, since it's my intellectual property, but hey, that's how math should be done unless you want mathematicians to starve: you feed numbers into a black box and get answers from the other end. Sheesh...

Could be... but it's a joke I need for my college.

Thank you.

I actually have both GNU Octave and QT Octave as you can see in my Fluxbox menu, how could you miss that? Octave is a Matlab clone and is open source. I only use Matlab because I still have a student license for it. But I understand your frustration

So, you go through every line of code in every piece of mathematical software you use?

I go through some every now and then. When looking for correct ways to generate pseudo-random rationals, for example, I personally read through the code in GNU binutils, awk, perl, and others I am forgetting now. Every time I have to do this, I am pleasantly surprised. Reading Paul Eggert's code was not only remarkably easy, but also made me feel enlightened

But of course, even if I couldn't read C to save my life, I'd still have the same attitude. I do trust the world-wide community of hackers and mathematicians to review the code. I don't trust a proprietary software vendor for a second. These are the same people who root your systems and spy on your files.

And even beyond the issues of personal trust, it's just hilarious that people (scientists!) are willing to throw away all of their notions about the integrity of the scientific research for a shiny piece of software. It's not peer-reviewable, and that should be the end of the argument. A good word for using this software for purposes other than entertainment is "corruption". I hope you can see how this becomes the ultimate joke when applied to math: the only thing we have to show for our efforts are proofs. A valid proof is what turns a statement into a mathematical result. In this sense, MATLAB doesn't produce any math at all.
