Funny. I went exactly the other way. Had a full OO postprocessing library
for Python/Scipy/HDF etc which worked brilliantly. Then changed to a 64 bit
machine and spent three days trying to install all the additional libraries
that I had become dependent on over the year. In the end, I gave up
completely frustrated (something to do with a Fortran compiler in
combination with SciPy or something). Then I tried MATLAB  and was
completely delighted that there was a program with all MY batteries
included :-).

BTW, I have the impression that MATLAB and SciPy have about the same
