I think that the usual rule applies. Look to see what language people adressing the same sort of problems as you have are using. Look to see what the big mathematical library developers are using (eg see netlib http://www.netlib.org & statlib http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/). Find out about compiler choice, availability, price, and performance in your sort of application.
