While I can appreciate the concern with being able to manipulate output, the basic question of what package to use depends on the 1) quality and quantity of the statistical routines offered; 2) the quality of the support; and 3) the ease (or lack of same) in making a purchase and installation.  Stata (as far as I am concerned) leaves the other major packages in the dust.  Not only have the routines available in Stata allowed me to investigate problems that I was unable to investigate before, but the support has been the best I have seen for any software package in the sciences.  The cost and conditions of its license has allowed us to make it available in ways that we could not with other packages.  And I have learned more about statistics from the package than I ever thought would be possible.  It is a gem.
