    LINUX based free Maths software

    Hi, there are variety of LINUX maths software, some of them clones of MATLAB etc, any one has used these, if so can that person give an idea how they preform, or how difficult is to use them, given that LINUX is not that easy use to some one has been used to Windows.

    The main suspects are Maxima, Octave, FreeMat, SciLab, .. all are pretty good depending on what you expect and are more of less equivalent to thier windows ports.

    I have not used these under Linux but there should be no real issues.

    Hi Captain, thanks for your reply, and more thanks for your presence here, you are great help to may people!
    I know they work under Windows, but when it comes to Linux, they have problem, one those I tried and never worked was MATLAB clone JMathlib ,
    Be nice some one to come forward and tell us about their operation under Linux, that Maxima is fairly unstable, I use OpenSuSe, But will try Fedora as well soon, see if they work in Fedora better!

    Scilab

    I have used Scilab in Linux, just started using it, but i went through the tutorial and everything worked alright. I have been plotting simple 2-D graphics. There is a nice and full-seeming help window with all the commands and examples. I mean, i think everything works as it should. Check out the website to download the tutorial. I'll post if i come across any problems.
