We're almost 100% compatible here.

Very compatible. Then only issues I've ever come across are issues
related to GCC not being compatible with MSVC. This means a lot of MEX
code doesn't run on Linux (but, hey, that  code wouldn't be compilable
with Matlab on Linux either).

This is a great way to get some of your research out to many users.

Yes. I don't think you can really call something "science" unless it is
100% transparent.

You should search the Octave mailing lists for "presentation". Not that
long ago someone else posted slides to the list.

I'm curious. You name sounds Danish. Which University are you attending.
Personally, I'm a PhD student at Dept. of Computer Science at the
University of Copenhagen.
