RE: DM32
I still don't get it.

One again, emulation is illegal (unless you leave it to the user to supply the ROM, which is weird for a physical product), and simulation is a huge work. Thomas, who is an expert, has worked for years on Free42 / Plus42. Ok, this is more complex than a 32sii but still, you need an equation parser, quite a few things, I don't see Swissmicro writing all this in such a short time...

Besides, having used Plus42 extensively, I don't want to use anything else now, as far a "simple" RPN calculators are concerned. Granted, the 32SII is a cool calc, nice to have, maybe simpler to use in some situations, but not that much: for instance even if the 32Sii has an alpha keyboard, in practice it requires 2 key strokes per letter, just like the 42, since you need to "RCL" every letter. And Plus42 has shortcuts for direct functions like RUP, X<> and %CH... Save for the fraction mode (IMHO pretty useless and limited to 4096 denominator - you are better off with an advanced fraction conversion program), there is absolutely nothing that the 32SII does that Plus42 does not do in a much better way...

I agree with the comments that the efforts should focus on making a physical Plus42. That would be really cool.
