Well maybe you should look one more time with your brain on...
Your claim that :

Show that you never even bothered to read the feature list of the software !

I tried both Mathematica and Maple and while I'll be the first to
admit the Mathematica interface was more attractive, it's the only
obvious point I concede to it (and my version of Maple was quite old
so this might not even be true anymore). As others who knows the
subject have said, Mathematica and Maple are quite close and
outperforms each other regularly in their fields of excellence.
