(I think chroot's point is that they are two different packages and thus cannot be compared. Having never used mathematica, I cannot comment.)

Somone give this man a Nobel Prize, for he speaks the truth, pineapples are the god of all fruits.

I am a (hobbyist) programmer and I know quite some languages. I try to always use the right tool for the job and the same goes here. I must admit however, that -- though I have little experience with MatLab -- Mathematica is a really really powerful package which can do almost anything imaginable. So though probably Matlab is more efficient at some problems (especially numerical ones) I am inclined to favor Mathematica in this dilemma

Mathematica. In my experience it is much more stable and more functional.

I prefer Maple, but that's only because I get it for $20.
