Who uses Octave?

Me.

If you had access to Matlab, would you use it instead?

Probably.

Why not Python/R/Julia?

I know the Matlab syntax/commands/language and that enables me to be productive with Octave quickly. I just don't have the time to learn and evaluate Python/R/Julia (although Julia looks intriguing, but again, I just don't have the time).

edit: TL/DR - what forkandwait wrote.
