Abstract: One of the greatest combinatorialists and number theorists of our time is George Andrews, who made partitions an active and hot mathematical area, and helped make Ramanujan a household name. But all this dwarfs compared with his PIONEERING use of Symbolic computation, starting with very creative use of the early computer algebra system SCRATCHPAD, and continuing to this day with the still-going-strong saga, joint with the RISC-Linz gang, on implementing and beautifully applying MacMahon's Omega calculus. Alas, George, being a tie-and-jacket wearing traditionalist, does not like revolutions, and hence even he does not realize the full impact of his mathematical legacy, that is FAR larger than the sum of its many impressive parts.
