So, I like Maple language. I want to promote it. However, among my friends, people mostly like things that are "Free and Open" like SymPy is. However, I think Maple is just better for mathematics, because it is so interactive, and it's so easy to explore mathematical concepts with it. So, I would like it to survive and be widely used.
The statistical R package seem to have survived by having many arduous open source fans writing packages, convenient functions and interfaces with general purpose languages. I don't see much of this trend with Maple, but I would love to, and yet I am not in power to change the fact that Maple is not open source. So, my question -- can we open source Maple?
