Gretl for Statistics

For those who may be interested in having a statistics package on their computer without having to pay a yearly licensing fee, you may want to take a look at Gretl. It is an open source statistical package that seems to have a growing following among economists. It has a relatively intuitive graphical interface, so it is a bit more user friendly for beginners compared to R. In addition, for more obscure statistical tasks, one can open and use R through Gretl. Here is a link to more information: http://gretl.sourceforge.net/
