Hi guys

I'm giving a talk at my university about Matlab alternatives and I naturally 
want to talk a little about octave. As I want to give the best impression I 
need som help on what to highlight. Currently I'm planning to talk about:
- Compatibility with Matlab's .m-file format.
- Compatibility with Matlab mex files. (How compatible is Octave curently)
- Octave-forge
- Free software!! This is a major plus on a university as it makes it possible 
for the software engineers to look at the internals and learn.
- Also I want to mention that octave is not compatible with matlabs GUI 
features and that there are some language differences as function scoping rules 
and some octave-only syntax.

Any help is appreciated. The talk is aimed at one of the institutes and not 
the students. They are all Matlab fans and I hope to open their eyes for the 
many great possibilities of free software. I also plan to talk about 
numpy/scipy/matplotlib and maybe mention scilab.

Best Regards
