with MATLAB and S-plus you'll pay more money
with R and S-Plus you'll have trouble reading in your non-ascii data
with MATLAB and Octave you'll find 3-D arrays don't exist.
with Octave, you'll find the graphics suck
with Yorick, you'll find the structures inflexible
... so the answer is clearly to go with fooware. Where can I download
that from, now?
P.S. I actively like Yorick in many ways and R is also very
good and developing rapidly, although it will be a severe culture shock to
hard science types.
