As all us old RPN people retire, there is less and less demand for RPN programmability, and the Prime becomes more viable in the engineering market.

Is RPN/RPL really for for retired users/engineers? Btw, RPN/RPL is possible with the prime, settings, like the HP50G.

Optimus Prime will be with voice control, and hologram, very probably.

It not the age, I'm 40 years less experienced, but for my brains and how my head works the RP(L/N) reverse polish logic is spot on. I will not return to algebraic. Not at least as long I can get my hands a spare parts for 50g or equivalent machines. It is so sophisticated both in how the programs builds up from simple sub modules and how the actual calculations builds naturally up from sub modules.

Obviously I wouldn't want to program a monolithic windowing OS with the RPL, but for (interactive) mathematical environment it is a god like.
