[vox-tech] R vs. MATLAB/Octave

The answer is basically the same as for the comparison I made of R to
SPSS and SAS last week:  R was developed by famous statisticians, so its
statistical methodology is correct and modern.  MATLAB was developed by
a numerical analyst.  So, R would be better for statistics while MATLAB
would be better for stuff like solving differential equations.
