[XeTeX] OT: creating beautiful graphs

Hey everyone,

This is somewhat off-topic from XeTeX.  I assume that most, if not  
all, the member on this list are Mac users, and I'm calling out to  
those who regularly have to plot data to include in their XeTeX  
documents.  I regularly have to plot data for lab reports and I have  
in the past done so in the most cumbersome method possible.  I would  
plot the data in Excel, then decrease the margins of the graph, then  
print the graph to PDF, and then include the graph into my XeTeX  
document.  I was wondering if there was a nice Mac program that  
plotted data very well.  I have used Grapher, but only to plot known  
equations, not raw data.  I was thinking of using either Octave or  
MATLAB but I don't necessarily want to use a heavyweight program just  
to plot some data.  What do you all use?
