I too am (newly) interested in Algebraic Geometry
and would prefer to pursue that in Axiom or another
free CAS (rather than Maple) since this is only a
hobby interest for me.

>From the links you (so kindly) offered I also found
the following:

Macaulay2 Home Page
  A software system devoted to supporting research
  in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra.
Computations in algebraic geometry with Macaulay 2, 
 edited by David Eisenbud, Daniel R. Grayson, Michael
 E. Stillman, and Bernd Sturmfels.  Springer-Verlag

In no way am I trying to move the discussion away
from Axiom, but I am interest in the subjects no
matter what the tools (if the price is right.)
And these links seem related, depending on the
relationship with Algebraic Topology and if Geometric
Algebra has the same meaning (do they relate?)

Algebraic Topology
  Homotopy & homology spaces are discussed beginning 
  in Chapter 0 (Geometric introduction)

Clifford's Geometric Algebra of Physical Space (APS).
  The intention is to explain the use of paravectors 
  in the algebra to model spacetime.
 Relativity in Introductory Physics 
 Also available: GAWorkBook

Disclosure:  I am directly trying to gain a (much) 
better appreciation and understanding of the 
"The Road to Reality: A Complete Guide to the Laws 
of the Universe" by Roger Penrose.
