      SMath Studio is the best approximation to Mathcad in interface feel and features. The main shortcomings of SMath Studio relate to plots and some plug-ins, but it's only a matter of time before they catch up with Mathcad.

      It is very close to Mathcad and works in the same way. Many of the other alternatives are toolboxes for programming rather than actual worksheets.

      I have started using it. It is like MathCAD15.

      niksfish2 I have tried it. Like others said, it looks the same as Mathcad15 (best interface in my opinion, I dislike prime). Also, I like that when you put an unit you have to put ' first, so you don't have issues with naming variables that could be the same as the units.

      Mathcad works with units with an engineer's point of view, mathematica works with an academic/theoretical point of view for mathematicians.
