Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
SALVIATI: If everyone were exposed to mathematics in its natural state, with all the challenging fun and surprises that that entails, I think we would see a dramatic change both in the attitude of students toward mathematics, and in our conception of what it means to be "good at math." We are losing so many potentially gifted mathematicians -- creative, intelligent people who rightly reject what appears to be a meaningless and sterile subject. They are simply too smart to waste their time on such piffle.
SIMPLICIO: But don't you think that if math class were made more like art class that a lot of kids just wouldn't learn anything?
SALVIATI: They're not learning anything now! Better to not have math classes at all than to do what is currently being done. At least some people might have a chance to discover something beautiful on their own.
SIMPLICIO: So you would remove mathematics from the school curriculum?
SALVIATI: The mathematics has already been removed! The only question is what to do with the vapid, hollow shell that remains. Of course I would prefer to replace it with an active and joyful engagement with mathematical ideas.
I'm using Quicken 2002 for Windows, running under VMware on the Mac.
KMyMoney is apparently tied to KDE 3 not 4, meaning the libs aren't cross-platform so there's no Mac-native KMyMoney.
Just curious - Why not run KMyMoney under VMware, on an OS that supports KDE 4 ?
