    "Amazing software"

    Version: Matlab 7.5

    Matlab, unlike Mathematica, has amazing documentation. It's programming language is also superior, and supports a more familiar C-like syntax that makes coding quick and easy. Even its source code editor is impressive, and again superior to that of Mathematica. While Mathematica does symbolic computation better than Matlab, it's in many ways irrelevant because many times even the examples in Mathematica's documentation will not run due to various syntax errors. In every other respect Matlab is a superior product to Mathematica, so for those students and researchers who are looking for a powerful math-related program, look no further than this. It is the best thing you can get probably on any platform, and certainly on OS X.

    "Slow but steady"

    Version: Matlab 7

    I am very pleased that there is a Matlab as well as its add-ons available for the mac. I use matlab and its neural network and control systems toolkits frequently. The main downside is that the user-interface is very slow when compared to that of the Windows version - Manipulating user interface elements involves a bit of waiting, which is extremely frustrating when trying to manually add annotations to plots for example. For this reason I do any such things with their command-line equivalents whenever possible. It is also possible to run matlab from a window, which I often do as well in order to get better response speed.

    The documentation for the system is excellent. It is very easy to navigate and the searching works very well. Again, it is slower to operate than on the PC side, but it works.

    I haven't had any problems with it crashing.
