What the heck? O.O

(Btw it's not me. Not sure why someone would try to impersonate me and praise the Nspire under my name ._.)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Probably the NSA or perhaps TI? :-)

To get back to the subject,

Personally I'm a little disappointed with my TI Nspire CX CAS.

I guess I should have known better, I did try it for some hours in the windows emulator. But the win emulator did hide two of the major flaws:

1. I used my mouse, not the calculators lacking trackpad

2. the stupid colour of "selected text", invisible!

The calculator is by no means "bad" or subpar, but not as great as I had wished.

Since I don't want to buy 3 calculators this spring, I'm trying to decide between the Classpad II and Prime. So let's keep the thread going!

Happy Friday everyone!

Regarding #1, I noticed that in Ndless programs, the touchpad "mouse" is much more responsive than in the OS. At first I was worried that my touchpad was defective, but then realized it was the OS fault. Basically, the mouse isn't very responsive and when moving the cursor around, there's a lot of stuttering, not to mention that in Lua programs it sometimes flickers like mad.

I haven't experienced #2 issues much though. In general I like the Nspire CX CAS UI in terms of design, although at first the calc can be a little confusing to use if you don't have any instruction manual.

My main gripe about the TI-Nspire is how locked down it is. I can understand that TI doesn't want people to cheat in tests using PTTKiller or such programs, but they should at least let people downgrade if they want to (outside of classes, that is). By disallowing downgrades, they're pretty much removing our freedom, which is why so many people hate the TI-Nspire. Casio and HP has decided to not officially support assembly and C on their newer models, so hacks have to be found by the community for the ClassPad and HP Prime, but in the past, they have said that they would not try to block ASM/C exploits as long as we play nice (by not releasing any tool that can tamper with the teacher/exam modes).

If ASM ever comes out for the ClassPad, maybe a community member could release some sort of hack that speeds up some OS commands. As for the HP Prime, hopefully HP improves the OS enough before July-August, so that it's mature enough for back-to-school.
