I agreed.
I am using Octave since 96 and I used matlab before, I do not see the
compatibility
problem with matlab as a real issue.
I basic scripting is the almost similar and people that know matlab should
easily
migrate
to octave, if they like it.
My feeling is, if you like octave make a effort to learn it as it is, otherwise
buy matlab.
GUI interface.
Spending resource on GUI is not something that a consider high priority. For
instance
a tools for symbolic analysis sound to me more interesting.
