RE: on the RPN mentioning sharp pc1211, v.albillo, el506w and recurring topics
the topic is not much about "what Trond find best" or not. But it is about "what seems more fitting the general trend".
Unless one writes on paper: 5 3 + * I find that the trend is geared towards algebraics. There are cases  as wrote above  where the RPN is as good or even better, but not with the current multiline calculators. @Trond: my point about writing the formula was a bit different. If I use a device that shows easily the formula while I type it, I go with algebraic notation. I do not see the need of RPN in that case. If I cannot see the formula, then RPN has practical advantages. If I see an algebraic formula built while I type RPN, it is even more confusing. On the 50g either I use the equation writer (so no RPN), or I use the RPN entries but for smaller formulas. Maybe 34 operations. Wikis are great, Contribute :)
