I downloaded 8.3.21 today, running Leopard (10.5.2). I'm having all kinds of problems - not only does the flowchart option not work (this is flagged on the BM website), but neither does HELP, I'm having problems with graphs, nothing seems to work. Overall, it appears that BM 8.3.21 and OS 10.5.2 are not compatible. If this is so, why were we not warned? Anyone else have similar problems? Thanks.

Yeah, it seems the BSD license would be appropriate... guess that's too "old-school" though.

Indeed both NSF and NIH are funded by tax dollars, and in both cases underfunded. It is interesting that software resulting from many NSF sponsered projects remains in the public domain, as it should be. At the same time Fed's push for tech-transfer and the commercialization of research is seen as an economic stimulus. This product, however, is not tech transfer, but simply a wrapper for basic mathematics. It does appear to be an unethical if not egregious violation of the intent of those Federal funds.

Developed with the sponsorship of NSF and NIH. And $299 for individual licenses? Oh, sure. I bet UCB is grabbing bank on this one, too. These are desperate times indeed.

These guys are a strange amalgam of Democrat and Republican. Though I like the idea, I withhold my full approval pending court challenges.

Why don't they let me to send my $299 directly to the NSF? Or, for that matter, UCB.

This just mixes together public and private money too much for my taste. If these brilliant (but kinda wooly) mathematicians want to make a living at this, they should get out into the real world and try to make a living there.
