Comment Clueless MARCOM people and the things they say (Score 1) 434

Not a happy shareholder lately.

Moved almost everything to python/numpy/scipy/Matplotlib over a year ago and really haven't looked back.

Here's one thing that Matplotlib should not have replicated from MATLAB: insane memory usage.
Please folks, lets get it under control: 1G of memory to display a med-large image is a joke !
