I agreed.

I am using Octave since 96 and I used matlab before, I do not see the
problem with matlab as a real issue.

I basic scripting is the almost similar and people that know matlab should 
to octave, if they like it.

My feeling is, if you like octave make a effort to learn it as it is, otherwise
buy matlab.

GUI interface.

Spending resource on GUI is not something that a consider high priority. For
a tools for symbolic analysis sound to me more interesting.
