Re: Macsyma Corporation

Anonymous's picture

Macsyma Corporation--- does it still exist? Their supposed website is unreachable, so I called the phone number listed in the Linux Journal new product announcement. The lady who answered (obviously now a personal residience) says she has had this number for months, and gets a lot of calls for Macsyma. Does anyone know if somebody else picked up the product? It seems fairly evident that Macsyma Corporation itself is history. But I'd still like to get their software (and get it legally) if possible.
