I agree with this, but what's more, I don't think that linking "Try
Axiom" to the SandBox is that helpful.  If a visitor to the webpage
wants to give Axiom a quick try, sending them to a lengthy discussion
of the sandbox might be discouraging.  Perhaps a link to a
"TryingAxiom" page which has a couple of lines of how to try it out
might be helpful.  I'd be happy to give it a shot myself, if desired.

Also, I don't think it's necessary (or even desirable) to keep all the
old tried-out commands in the wiki.  I think a link to a page which
interactively runs Axiom would be more desirable: Yacas has something
like that (Yacas runs in a Java applet:  and Maxima does also

By the way, I'm entering the discussion late.  I don't recall what the
front page looked like, but I recall thinking it looked a bit
unfriendly.  (Of course, my memory may be wrong.)  Now I think it
looks great!
