Octave is very close to Matlab. It implements virtually all of the
core Matlab functions, and it has the same syntax, unlike Scilab or
the Python numeric libraries. You might want to install QtOctave as
well if you're afraid of terminals. ;-) Both Octave and QtOctave are
packaged for Debian.

It also has a very active community in the mailing lists.  Definitely
worth checking out.
