Anyone reading have any experience with symbolic algebra packages on Ubuntu? I'm not seeing much posted out there -- a bunch of launchpad entries and one recommendation of maxima and wxmaxima.
I want something that makes it dirt-easy to type in equations and get symbolic answers: I type in something like this
x**2 - 2*s*x + s**2 = 0
and I get back
x = s
I do want, however, to be able to do systems of equations.
