    Question What Statistics Software do you recommend?

    I would like to know the softwares that you use for statistics (excluding SPSS, obviously) or statistical computations on Linux.

    Thanks!

    Don't think that there is so much available, according to my knowledge the only still actively maintained package is pspp (PSPP). I could be wrong however...

    That's one of the reasons I keep dual booting with XP: I need SPSS for University.

    Re: What Statistics Software do you recommend?

    A couple notable ones. You can download and run the open-source version of S-plus, also known as "R" on linux. You will find it packaged as R-base. Someone is currently working on getting the linux version of WinBUGS operating through R. Not promising at the moment.

    I believe that a linux version of SAS is available (but non-free).

    You can (I have) bought Matlab and install the statistics toolkit. Ditto for Maple.

    Did you have a particular software package in mind?
    Kind Regards

    I have installed SPSS 11.5 under Linux using codeweavers cxoffice 6.1.0. (commercial version of wine). I used the same botlle (virtual windwos c: disk) that I installed office 2000 on. Everything seems to work allright except for the graph functions. I can can load data, analyze it, produce tables with output etc. Only producing graphs seems problematic. The install is going smoothly, asking for a serial etc.
    So if you can miss graphs, SPSS seems to work allright. The more people us SPSS with cxoffice, the bigger the chance that they will start support on it.

    Thanks for the information, but is there any particular reason you posted the exact same thing in 4 diferent threads?

    And while it may be true that if more people use SPSS with crossover than it will be better supported, wouldn't it be better to support a program that actually runs natively (with functioning graphing capabilities) on linux if that is the OS of choice? Or if more people tell the makers of SPSS that they want a Linux version instead?
    This looks nothing like my signature...

    I raccomend R (package r-base). You can also find matlab for linux, if you're used to that and want to make your passage to linux easyer

    I highly recommend R for anyone looking to do more "high powered" or customized work in statistics.

    I've used R, SAS, and Minitab (R on both, SAS, Minitab on Windows) and while SAS can be great, I think SAS is better at set/well-defined analyses whereas R is better for custom work. R is also designed as a language/environment where the SAS macro facility left me feeling like it was an add-on. Custom scripting is much closer to the everyday in R.
