    Would you agree to pay the cost of a few Matlab licences to have a
    proper OSX dmg installer for Octave?
    If so, I think we can probably find someone to do the job (well
    actually someone has the job almost dome already,
    the money would indeed motivate him to complete it).

that's purchasing a service rather than making an acquisition. although
equal in dollar value, those costs are not equal in the eyes of many

If you believe you make an acquisition when you pay for software you're delusional. Yes, many organizations are.
(E.g. you pay for matlab, you have to pay again next year.)

Speaking of Windows and gooeys, the only usable cross-platform gui is java. There is this java program called jedit that we've been using for years, it's a "programmer's" text editor with plugin hooks and a large number of plugins. Has tabbed buffers, split views, rectangular copy-paste, a ton of plugins incl. IDE-type ones already available. Anyone heard of it?
