Having said that, I now run a UNIX version of Matlab because it's plotting features are superior to Octave because they are native whereas Octave uses GNUPlot.

I am only a few hours deep into the Matlab/Octave world and already the ratio is >1.

Matlab wins because Octave doesnt have a complete package for controls. Biggest missing tool is the symbolic laplace transform... Its really unfortunate. If I had more time, or didn't have to work so hard this semester I would consider attempting to write some code for a laplace transform... then maybe... just maybe they would be a bit more evenly matched.

I tested both and for me the winner is matlab. The GUI is a big advantage and the Graphs are nicer and better to handel.

An other reason is that matlab is much faster than octave. Where Matlab takes 430 sec for a certain calculation octave takes 1000 sec. remarkable!

For a lot of things, its got most of the same functionality as matlab and octave and is better behaved than octave. I've debugged matlab in octave without much trouble before, so I don't think you'll run into much trouble learning on it.
