I totally agree with that sentiment. At least for Mathematica and I, it has
been very educational for me to see how the same calculations can be
accomplished in different ways. As long as all the programs given are
correct and don't take an excessive amount of time to run (or even if they
do but they have a warning to that effect) there's great value to having
multiple programs even for a single CAS.
