Although MATLAB is still used for most of the research we use Octave for teaching in years 1 and 2. We also supply it on a live CD, together with a large number of other software and free/opensource text books etc.

I teach a  course of numerical methods with octave given at
 o Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble 1  (UJF)
 o Polytech  Grenoble

Some colleagues give a similar course at
 o École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

we also use octave daily as a replacement for matlab (we don't use any
matlab toolboxes)

I use it daily for my data analysis in my research (composite structures). I also encourage its use in a course on measurement and instrumentation at the University of Michigan.

Matlab is primary, since the bulk of the students choose windows and the computer labs only have octave (2.9.13) on the linux side of a dual boot setup. However I have sold a few on installing octave on their own machines.

This seems to come up fairly regularly... I think we should wikify this topic. Then we could just reference others to a specific website.
