This is surely one of the best open source projects.
I know I want to use NumPy, however easy_install for NumPy version 1.7.0 fails (writing out of sandbox), and the link to the project web site is broken ... is the rest of the software also so ... quirky ???
The numpy+matplotlib+python better than matlab and python is very easy, beautiful and powerful language
excellent framework for my data analysis which I do almost entirely in python nowadays (physics)
This is the one project I can not live without. It forms the framework for my own project (http://pyformex.org)
satisfies all my needs. numpy + matplotlib + python much better than using matlab. I'm glad and proud that i switched.
