lolz @ Mathematica

I love Wolfram and I love Mathematica so don't take this the wrong way, but the most recently blog post on the Wolfram Blog about their efforts traveling around and showing Mathematica off ends with this little snippet:

"Wow! This is Mathematica? I had always thought Mathematica was hard to use, but you've shown me so many things that even I, a teacher who rarely uses technology in the classroom, am ready to start using it."

I do appreciate Wolfram getting out there and showing Mathematica to people but let's not kid ourselves guys - Mathematica is hard to use. And perhaps that's how it should be. It's unrivaled in its power to do... everything, and that just couldn't happen if it was accessible to just any guy on the street.
