It is all a matter of perspective. I am *constantly* executing code
with shift-enter! I agree with all the arguments for the current
I am finding it extremely hard to swap these in my muscle memory (and
sure I want to since I use Maple a lot too, but hope to replace it
at some point:-).
I am using notebook as a terminal replacement... I usually type a
