Question: on using Maple notation for output of some commands.

I did not understand fully some of the notation used in 2D when I had the tools->options->Display->Output display->2D. So I thought if I change it to Maple notation. I might see what the symbol actually mean.  But when I did so, the result was even more confusing. Full of typesetting:-mrow commands and hard to read.

Here is the output in 2D

int(1/( (x-a)*(x-b)),x=-infinity..infinity  );

And here is the output when I switched to Maple output:

I was expecting to see "normal" looking Maple commands, which I can understand. Even the Latex is easier to read than the above mumple jumple code:


Does this mean one should forget about using Maple notation for output from now on? Why is it the output so complicated?
