I, too, began my career with SPSS.  Over 10 years ago, I made the move to Stata.  Hands down, Stata wins.  I still have the most current version of SPSS/PASW--because I can get it through my university at a very low cost, bundled with the structural equation software, AMOS.  Otherwise, I'd leave it behind.  

I supplement Stata with R and, occasionally, SAS.
