      SageMath vs Maple
      pros, cons and recent comments
      it is free. It combines the abilities of many open source systems. The user interface is fairly simple and easy to learn.

      Excellent alternative to Maple and Mathematica for the serious user ; may alleviate Matlab needs (except for dedicated toolboxes, which may or may not have a Python/Sage equivalent). Users need to invest some time in learning Python and some basics of undergraduate mathematics. Not much shiny interface gadgets, but a trove of mathematical gems. Excellent tools for the production of reproducible research/actie documents. Definitely recommended if openness is important.

      Maxima vs Maple
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Pitty the idea of this program is not as bad as it could be, but it's not even close a match for maple.
