Really great free software

Just discovered this great suite of tools for data mining and visualising data.

This is python based and you can add your own scripts to the tools. Very simple to use with  intuitive graphic user interface. The add-ons are also really useful with one specifically bioinformatic giving access to databases etc. Below is an example of how to do a heatmap. And you can output a beautiful high resolution heatmap.png.
