The reason Matlab persists

9.27.09

While Matlab may not be in the cutting edge of computing, it does have one great qualitiy: amazing service. While I still have major gripes towards using it due to its slowness, antiquated programming language, and lack of Mac support, they did an honest effort in fixing a bug I filed. Within 24 hours someone contacted me asking for more information about the bug, and a week later I was told files were available that would fix the issue. While the fix didn’t fix much, and it was not in an easy to use patch, they did try. Never would an open source solution be so helpful.
