<x-flowed>Hello to all,

I subscribed to this mailing list a short while ago and feel urged to 
react to the MATLAB off-topic.
First a brief introduction: I work for a small dutch engineering firm 
involved in innovative hydrostatics. I use LaTeX (TeXShop and Pepper 
under OSX) for the dissertation I am writing.

Although off-topic, I was glad the MATLAB issue appeared on this mailing 
list. The Mathworks had gotten me to think I was the only Mac MATLAB 
user left ! (They sent me their standard answer on the OSX inquiry)

Thanks for all the usefull remarks and tips:
- I too, had the MATLAB crashing on window closing issue: on my desktop, 
not on my laptop: I will upgrade to 9.2.1 and OSX 10.1 shortly.
- I had forgotten about Octave, I will revisit them and the alternatives 

On MATLAB speed under OSX: I have tested on a dual processor (500 Mhz) 
desktop G4 and got equal speed running MATLAB in 9.1 under OSX, compared 
to native running under 9.1 on the same machine. It seems the speed 
advantage claimed for OSX on dual processor machines, offsets the speed 
penalty of running 9.1 under OSX.
