I'd like to add to that, indeed. My own experince was that I had to switch
from Matlab to Octave when I changed University and Operating System. I had
a lot of matlab scripts which ran just fine in Octave. The only problem was
that I also used things like ginput and cells in Matlab, and they did not
work. But that forced me to re-write a couple of front-end scripts. The
rest, wonderful. In a few days I was working again.
