How's Mathematica?

Hello, I've been seriously considering purchasing Mathematica 3.0, Student version for Linux, ever since I learned that WRI supported the Linux platform. However, I've been reading here that Mathematica has been paranoid at best and unstable at worst. I was just wondering if someone could give me a breakdown on the situation for the nondemo version e.g. does the system only work with certain Linux kernel versions; is it easy to reregister in the event that I want to change my machine name; how stable is it does it crash as bad as Win95 on a good day; etc... Any light you can shed on the subject would be most appreciated. Thanks, Alan
