why not use Microsoft Mathematics ?

it works on W7….

As i mentioned ‘IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN ALTERNATIVE’ try Red Crab. i am not favoring any one application. its always good to have an alternative, isn’t it?

of course it might be good to have an alternative, if you fx. for some reason don´t like “Mathematics”.

but, you wrote: “If you are looking for a similar alternative for Windows 7, try Red Crab.”

by writing like that you give all readers the impression that Mathematics doesn´t work on W7…

so that ´s why i asked: “why not use Microsoft Mathematics ?

since it works on W7 too.
