I have edited the wikibook
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/MATLAB_Programming to go "As Octave is
used and developped today nearly as a MATLAB clone" ?
what about to follow the R/S-plus relationship and say something like
"As Octave is used and developed today as a GNU MATLAB".
Octave is a "Gnu Matlab" .. what do you all think?
Aside from the obvious problems with trademark infringement that
statement poses, it sounds as strange as saying Linux is a "GNU
Windows". (Anyone remember Lindows? Microsoft took them to court over
it.) I think John's statement yesterday (I hope I remember correctly
since I already deleted the mail) that Octave is a free implementation
of the Matlab language is the most accurate description.
