Mathematical software of choice? (Archived)

**DJ Makto**:

Going to post this to breath some life into the Math forum.

I am a former STATA user turned R-project aka R convert. ;D

[x] Other: Scilab

We used Matlab here at university but the license authentication stuff is crap. I need either a working WPN tunnel everytime I want to use it or refresh the license every 30 days (which didn't work on my last attempt). Therefore I switched to the open source Scilab which is mostly compatible to Matlab (at least the base feature set).

**Swoka Ikran**:

None now.

I messed around with matlab once when I was bored once though, and used Microsoft Math for calculus class (easy way to find integrals...)

Ah, yes.

My friend showed me that last semester. We used it to check a few calculus problems we had for extra credit. Thing's amazing :D
