I'm pretty sure they have a version of Maple for Linux that is roughly
$100 or $150.

I had a student edition of Mathematica on Linux, and while it is
outstanding software, their locking and licensing is ridiculous. You can
expect a copy to run in excess of $1000 (haven't checked lately, but a
couple years back I think it was over $2k). Don't know about the other
listed ones, but Maple has had some fairly good reviews.
