Does anyone know of a free scientific calculator for the PC? The one that comes with W7 is crap and I'm tired of using matlab or wolframalpha for the most basic of calculations.

Google? While it can't do memory (I guess you could open up multiple tabs and copy and paste) it can do unit / base conversions and all of the scientific calculator type stuff I've thrown at it:

What's wrong with the Windows calculator? I use it all the time for basic calculations. In Standard mode, it's just a simple calculator, but in Scientific mode it has a lot more capabilities. There are also Programmer and Statistics modes.

It doesn't like notations like 4e-5 and its a pain to use with trig functions. I like a calculator where I can type in an entire formula and have it not do anything until I hit enter or =.

I've been quite happy with this one (calc98). It's free.

Calc98 doesn't seem to be any better than the calculator that comes with windows. :confused:

I use a python shell (which has most of the functionality of matlab if you throw in some libraries)
