"Use this software in my studies of Computer Engineering with free software"

Comments: It has many benefits but the most outstanding is its potential in terms of what we can develop with it and the fact that it is free

Pros: This software allows to make scientific and mathematical calculations of physics and engineering, it serves for the simulation of industrial control processes and it is also free

Cons: It can be said that there are few disadvantages we can mention the language in which it was made English and French must only have a previous instruction to handle it is not very instuitive

"Lightweight, powerful, but not compatible with MATLAB"

Pros: Scilab is a great tool for statistics, communications, satellite orbits, networking, algorithm complexity, and virtually all fields of academics and engineering. Both Scilab itself and its plugins (called modules) are cross-platform, with ready-made packages for Windows, macOS, the most popular Linux distros, and BSD. It is free and open-source, distributed under GPLv2 and previously CeCILL. The main application is well-written, using as little resources as possible, but stays as powerful as any alternative. The community is not large, but it is a serious one, users and programmers constantly working in making Scilab the optimal application of its kind.

Cons: Let's not lie; scientist and engineers use MATLAB a lot. Scilab, unfortunately, is not remotely compatible with MATLAB. As long as Scilab is not the most popular of its kind, compatibility will always be an issue. That being said, skill transfer is not a problem. Apart from that, some new modules might be heavier on your computer than they should, but a serious community makes sure they are improved with a rapid pace.

"Good for statistical and data analysis "

Comments: I used Scilab to perform a bunch of statistical analysis for the geographical data I was working with

Pros: Scilab is very similar to Matlab but it does not have a lot of in built functions that Matlab has. It gives me the flexibility to create functions and if you prefer to build your own functions you will like Scilab over Matlab

Cons: I did Like the figures that I was able to create with Matlab compared to the figures created in Scotland.

"Scilab performance"

Comments: Scilab is good to solve mathematical problems. If you get used to Scilab, you can perform various engineering work.

Pros: Good performance for open source program as mathematical solver. Scialab has various toolbox options to use specific area.

Cons: Precision of solver can be improved.
Autosave functionality is not dependable.
Signal operations like attaching two signals is hard to implement. It has its own style with xcos, so it is not easy to get used to it.

"Great software"

Pros: Scilab has a very clean interface and many functionalities. The best thing about it is that you can have it in your home for free and do a lot of work on it.

Cons: The support however is not even close when compared to the rival, it is quite harder to find more intrinsic features and helps.
