I've used Octave occasionally over the years. For simple matlab scripts it works fine, but very often matlab versions of a particular function will work on data types or in situations that Octave doesn't support with the same function. Also the matlab GUI is really nice and Octave's is considerably less so.

Matlab has grown over the years into an enormous ecosystem of tools and libraries, and it's not realistic that a free alternative be fully compatible with that.
