Open source mathematical software for scientists & engineers

I'm look for some opinion on mathematical software from any engineers out there. What is the open source application that --in your opinion(s) -- best meets the same requirements as Mathematica or Maple?

I'm running FreeBSD & Linux, btw.

Maybe Maxima will do. Does it really need to be open source? Fermat is shareware that only cost $50.

No, it doesn't have to be open source but philosophically, that's where I'm coming from. I'm interesting in learning ODE/PDE and eventually teach myself some CFD tecnhiques.

I just downloaded Fermat on my Mac (my FreeBSD machine is acting funny) and it looks pretty good. It would have been useful when I was an operations research analyst. Thanks!
