I've tried QGIS and GRASS for working with maps, though never used them in an academic context - but I know people who have. I've also had success running the Windows version of Igor Pro on Wine.

It might have been. But I'd been taught Igor, and with a single term+vacation to complete my project in, I didn't go looking for alternatives.

By "scientists", I think you mean "chemists" .

My work is pretty much data analysis and I use IDL, which is not free or open source, but I use it because that's what the community uses. I make use of SolarSoft, which is a library of IDL routines for processing and analysing solar data.

no no, chemists are in the category of scientists. Although their not willing, sometimes,
they are still in this category "scientists".

Scientists, in this branch of activities, are using usually same programs: latex, rlplot ...
