I hate to tangent (hijack?) this subject, but I'm curious about your class poll. Did the people who were interested in Matlab consider Octave?

N.B. the recent MPI class we gave suggested that we need to re-tool it 
to focus more upon Fortran than C.  There was no interest in Java from 
the class I polled.  Some researchers want to use Matlab for their work, 
but most university computing facilities are loathe to spend the money 
to get site licenses for Matlab.  Unfortunate, as Matlab is a very cool 
tool (been playing with it first in 1988 ...) its just not fast.  The 
folks at Interactive Supercomputing might be able to help with this with 
their compiler.
