Well, to disappoint everyone I have to confess that here, at Warsaw University, we are going to have a university wide course in Mathematica, open to all students of mathematics, natural sciences, economics and finance and even (oh horror!) computer science (in fact, I am not in the process of trying to "sell" this course to my the students in my analysis for computer science class). We have actually received a grant, quite substantial by Polish standards, to implement such a course, and, of course, since everyone likes extra money, this has meant that there has been no opposition or grumbling about it from any "old fogies" (except perhaps one guy who complained that Mathematica was not open source but we quickly stifled him)...
Of course, all of this is at this time only in its infancy. About a year from now I should be able to say something about the success or failure of this project. At this time the thing that worries me the most is the amount of work I foresee in trying to realise all we have promised in the proposal.
