I've noticed that very recently there has been a new site, mathematica.stackexchange.com.

It appears to be fairly new and very similar to this site.

What's the difference? It doesn't appear too obvious to me.

    $\begingroup$ I'm afraid that I must wonder what research you've done before asking the question. Especially considering that there's a giant information box that pops up for me in the link the question that starts with the sentence "Mathematica Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Mathematica" (emphasis mine), combined with the fact that as soon as I go to the site tour, the very first thing I see is "Mathematica® Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Wolfram Mathematica and the Wolfram Language." $\endgroup$ – user296602 Jan 20 '16 at 6:42
  • $\begingroup$ I think the number of downvotes exemplifies the fact that sometimes we don't tolerate "silly" questions and this happens a lot in M.SE, sadly. $\endgroup$ – Xam Feb 12 '17 at 19:04

Mathematica is a software used for symbolic computation and other computational mathematics. It is akin to Wolfram|Alpha (both come from the same company).

The Mathematica.SE website is dedicated for that software and its uses. This website is not for questions about mathematical software, as much as it is about mathematics.

(It's also not very new, with the first question from 4 years ago.)

  • $\begingroup$ Oh, that makes sense. :D Thank you. If it isn't new, I must've never seen it. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – Simply Beautiful Art Jan 19 '16 at 21:42
