    There's http://www.gnuplot.info/" [Broken], and I think the one named gp400win32.zip is the current windows version. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Here's a simple online plotting applet

    Here's another interactive plotter [for Windows]

    For something fancier [for Windows, DOS, Unix,...], GNUPlot is certainly better.

    Thanks for the link. Currently I use GNUplot that comes along with Maxima. But I will give this one a try.

    GraphCalc is user-friendly and operated similar to a calculator

    The program I like to use is called Graph. You can get it from www.padowan.dk. I like it because although it lacks some of the more advanced features (like 3D graphs) it is very easy to use. You don't have to spend days in front of your computer figuring out how to use it; you open it up, click the function button and everything becomes immediately clear from there.
