I did completely replace some years ago Matlab et al for interactive 
numeric manipulation and rapid prototyping with Python+IPython 
terminal+NumPy/SciPy  and been really happy since :-). You can find an 
interesting post about it here[1], and although it makes reference to Sage 
(more a Mathematica like environment), it applies to SciPy et al too.

You can get it all installed in windows through Python(x,y)[2], Enthough 
Python Distribution[3] or in linux precompiled through repositories for 
most of the distributions. Take a look at those projects websites to find 
more information about the subject.
