Hello,

> scilab is not FOSS - better to demo octave

If anyone using octave they are welcome.

Our concern is education and not commercial use.
FOSS=Free and/or Open Source Software that is how we see towards it.

Those who are using software with out purchasing them. Free or/and Open Source 
software give them better option. There are colleges using  other proprietary 
***lab software with out actually purchasing it. Scilab gives alternative to 
it.

FYI:
Actually both ***labs are using same parent library. And INRIA group from 
FRANCE  who are developing it are working on modifying its license.
