Axiom is now open source and freely available. You can
download the sources from: 
The easiest way to get them is:

cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/projects/axiom login
cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/projects/axiom co axiom

The login command will give you a password prompt. Just hit enter.
The "co axiom" command will check out the latest axiom and download
it to an "axiom" directory in your current directory (yourpath).

To build it type:

cd (yourpath)/axiom
export AXIOM=(yourpath)/axiom/mnt/linux

Aldor was the result of a design effort to clean up the old language.
Both the internal Axiom compiler (written in lisp) and the Aldor 
compiler (written in C) were upgraded to accept the same language.

For all practical purposes Axiom can use, but does not need, Aldor.
If you want to write new algebra it is infinitely easier to use
Axiom as you can leverage other people's algorithms.

Aldor can be used within Axiom but also capable of standalone code.
If you want to write a program to do non-algebra work Aldor is a
better language than most.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
