What do you hate in GeoGebra?
I have nothing to hate in GeoGebra. I would love it more if its functions of text formatting can be further enhanced.
What do you love in GeoGebra?
I love its dual (Graphic and Algebraic) modes of representations and constructions. I love its powerful commands, scripting and the conditional showing of objects. I love the flexibility it provides such as the customizable toolbar and Java-based HTML output. I love its nice Graphical User Interface. I love GeoGebraTube. Finally, I love the freeness of GeoGebra, not only in terms of price but also in terms of the liberty to implement my ideas freely.
