I have just installed Maple 9.0.2 on my PowerBook G4 (667 Mhz, 1Go,
Mac OSX 10.2.8).


--->>> Already met problems (releases 9 and 9.0.1) are always there
!!!


1) The recovery of my former files (Maple 7) is practically impossible
:
- All the accented letters (text input) disappeared,
- Fonts are not recognized,
- Various used styles are not recognized,
- The management of left single quotes (standard math) is erratic
(they disappear when recording).

2) Printing is catastrophic :
- Setting parameters are ineffective ("scale" in particular),
- The space between the printed lines is much bigger than that
appearing to the screen,
- characters in italic (standard math) are printed straight ahead,
- "Print preview" is of an unacceptable quality.

3) Miscellaneous
- An excessive slowness when opening Maple 9 or a .mw file.

To summarize :
On Macintosh OSX platforms, Maple 9.0.2 is unusable in the current
release.
Former files are irretrievable (text input and standard math).
Paper publishing is unusable.
Maplesoft is fucking around with Macintosh users.


--->>> Are the engineers of Maplesoft as stupid as they let it appear
??
--->>> Either do they make deliberately so that everybody goes away to
Mathematica ??

--->>> I am ashamed for them ...

--->>> Don't buy Maple 9 (neither 9.0.1, neither 9.0.2) for MacOSX !!
