Ah, gEDA is niiice.  That makes me very happy.  Thanks everyone!

I'll check out the maths software next time I need it.  It's mostly for
simple statistics, linear algebra, least squares regression, etc so I
don't need anything particularly powerful.

Galculator is also quite nice, and to Brad: the reason I want one is for
when I don't have my HP to hand ;-P
