      MATLAB vs Mathematica opinions
      This alternative is disputed. MATLAB is still a legitimate alternative to Mathematica, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      snshepherd Both are comprehensive mathematics solutions, and have very similar features, as well as even both being commercial.
