Choosing the free CAS

I was looking at the descriptions of different CAS and finally decided
to narrow it down to Maxima and FRICAS/OpenAxiom. I hope somebody can
answer the following questions:

1. What's the nature of the fork between FRICAS/OpenAxiom? Seems like
FRICAS points to OpenAxiom documentation, does that mean all their
features are essentially the same? Should I give a try to both or just
one of them?

2. A quick rundown on Maxima vs FRICAS/OpenAxiom. Again, may be
there's something on Web(?).
