I am so funny

Just a copy of what I alliterated on Richard's site earlier today:

Mathematicians use programs like Mathematica, Maple, Matlab (well, not real mathematicians, but I'm trying to make a point here...), MuPad, Macaulay or Magma.

Statisticians use SAS, SPSS, Statistica or S (well, or R indeed).

Artists use anything Adobe.

Programmers use Pascal, PostScript, Perl or Python. – Another reason why 'C' doesn't qualify...

We're seeing two patterns here: the obvious one and the one that the difficulty of linking to a particular product is proportional to the size or perceived moronicity of the company selling it.
