10.4: Be aware of a Calculator widget bug
Authored by: Gerk on May 24, '05 11:32:02AM

I agree with you here, it's a bug.

If you WANT incremental calculations you should type:

1 + 2 = 3
* 3 = 9

1 + 2 * 3 == 7 and it always should, the calculator shouldn't assume an = anywhere in that equation unless you specifically tell it so.

Either that or they should give the option of being fully incremental (as first example) and also the option to be algebraically correct (as in second example)... sadly I don't think most people would get it and they would still complain that it's broken LOL.
