Yes, Scilab and Octave are good packages.

It's known as Matlab free clone by some friends of

True! For me, Mathematica[1] is a good GUI reference.

I have no idea, but this seems to be a nice project to
investigate on. How about pretty print for expressions
using GtkMathView[2]?

Sounds very interesting. Perhaps someone could create
a GUI binding for math apps creating somekind of
editor like TeXmacs[3] adding the math interpreter
running inside. In brief, how about a Gtk# Math Editor
like TeXmacs that would be able to store sessions like
a mathml (xml?) doc with graphs inside?
