And if interested in Maxima, texmacs looks like a great way to go. Allows input and viewing in greek, proper subscripts, etc., all very LaTeX compatable and giving (fairly clean, but imperfect) LaTeX and pdf export. I have just started learning both maxima and texmacs myself, but it seems like a very nice combo. (I will keep LateX for proper reports and articles, but texmacs allows me to "play" with equations and access maxima in a visually appealing way).
