comment Issue with PieChart3D in Version10. Is it Mac specific?
Tried the code in Mathematica 10.0 under Linux... same error. Processor goes to 100% for a long time every time you click on the pie chart.

comment Text to speech in notebooks?
In previous versions of Mathematica for Linux, you would simply highlight any text and then wait for somebody to walk by and kindly ask them to read the text out loud. This was highly inefficient... but you could get a "Christopher Walken" accent fairly easily. Version 10 finally has built-in text-to-speech !

comment Graphics3D flickers in Mathematica 10 and Linux
All I can add is that I see no flickering in v10.0 on CentOS 7.0, but I have Intel graphics: so I'd suggest logging into KDE, XFCE or whatever and see if Gnome is at fault. I plan on testing v10.0 on my nVidia 780 Gnome desktop soon...

comment Mathematica crashes X in Ubuntu
Because you're probably using a composite desktop environment (Gnome 3 or Unity)... disable composite and those wont work. Look into switching to a non-composite desktop. I recommend XFCE4. I'm in Gnome 2 w/o composite ("desktop effects") so it works here.

comment Will Mathematica install and run on Raspberry Pi computer?
Wolfram also included a Remote Developemt Kit which allows: "Seamless development on the Raspberry Pi from any desktop version of Mathematica, including Home and Student Editions." wolfram.com/raspberry-pi/RemoteDevelopmentKitInstaller.cdf $50 Mathematica-powered remote "sensors" sounds like fun!

comment Is Mathematica v10 on the Raspberry Pi licensed for classroom use?
The program installs into /opt/Wolfram/WolframEngine/10.0/ so I'm calling it v10. The front end says Version Number 10.0.0.0

comment Why cant Mathematica 9 interpret this unit?
@m_goldberg. Looks like your method might be the easiest to implement. I'm going to cross my fingers and hope that it holds up. Thanks.

comment Why cant Mathematica 9 interpret this unit?
@Ymareth: yes that worked. I guess I'll resort to doing it that way... but it seems like it should work "cleaner" than that. Perhaps I'll make a palette of buttons with commonly used units so I don't have to type Quantity[""] each and every time.
