Axiom has existed for over 30 years. It was born as a research effort
at IBM Research, passed through a long development phase, and was
eventually sold as a commercial competitor to Mathematica and Maple.
Axiom is a huge, complex program that involved over 150 people and
over 300 man-years of research. In 2001 Axiom was withdrawn from
the market and released as Free and Open source software. This paper
covers the 30 year horizon into the past, discusses the present
situation, and discusses the view of the next 30 year horizon.
