"Sage" screenshots look very impressive. Did anyone actually used it for anything other than "toy" problems? How fast and stable is it?

Thanks!

I have been using the open-source data mining software Rapidminer for a couple weeks now and it is amazingly easy to use. The blog Neural Market Trends has some free short video tutorials too. You can create neural nets and SVMs in like 5 minutes and apply them to data loaded from excel.

Regards,
Max
