Microsoft releases Math 3.0 – now with Tablet PC features

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Microsoft Math 3.0 for a couple of months now, so I was very happy to see this press release come through today announcing the official availability of Math 3.0.

The Tablet PC enhancements in Math 3.0 have been implemented really, really well. Inking capability is built in to Math 3.0 all around, which makes it a show piece for properly ink-enabling an application. In addition, it functions really well as a touch application, although I’d recommend turning off the Origami Experience controls for better screen estate. We’ll put this on the list of software to highlight in our InkShows.
