    Indeed.

    The artwork is stunning.

    The math is mind-bending.

    That he chooses to use the proprietary and hugely expensive Mathematica as his programming language, intensely frustrating.

    I'm guessing

    • you're not a programmer;
    • you've no knowledge of Wolfram as a company.

    Well, i'm not a programmer and i've now a little knowledge of Wolfram...

    This personal / hobby licence seems reasonable and not hugely expensive considering whats within it.

    " i'm not a programmer "

    Exactly! Only a non-programmer would consider that a reasonable price for a product that carries those restrictions.

    There are hundreds of programming languages - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_programming_languages - and about 75% of them are either open source  or freely available.

    Amongst them are many -- including but not limited to:FreeMat, GNU Octave, Scilab -- designed specifically to perform a similar role to mathematica; and others such Julia, that can do everything it can do, and much, much more. All of which are unencumbered by petty restrictions and silly prices.

    The intensely frustrating part is that he freely shares his immense expertise in the form of code snippets; but in a language that is either costly or restrictive or both.

    (Bored of this yet?)
