Maple is a general purpose software tool for math, data analysis, visualization, and programming. It provides a complete, rapid solution development environment for thousands of technical organizations. Pricing for Maple is rather favorable. For applications which could be implemented likewise and with similar efforts for Maple, Mathematica and Matlab should seriously consider using Maple.

Using maple (linux)

Usually mathematica can be invoked directly as a versioned command

[me@pal ~]$ /usr/local/bin/maple2017   # to start the command-line tool or simply 
[me@pal ~]$ maple2017                  # as /usr/local/bin will usually be in the PATH.
[me@pal ~]$ xmaple2017                 # for the full graphical application

There is however no unversioned command "maple". To always use the most recent available version 

[me@pal ~]$ module load maple            # to use the newest version
[me@pal ~]$ module load maple/2016       # to use a specific version
[me@pal ~]$ xmaple
