(Excerpt from "The MathML Handbook" by Pavi Sandhu)

Maple is, like Mathematica, a general-purpose technical computing package that offers support for numerical and symbolic calculations, graphics, data analysis, and programming. The main difference is that Maple's front end is not as flexible and configurable as Mathematica’s. Maple does not include as much support for document processing and typesetting, such as the ability to edit the expression structure of mathematical notation or to create programmable documents. Maple is available for Windows and most Unix platforms but not for Macintosh.
