This surprises me. I just finished my dissertation, and did 
almost all my graphs in Stata. I considered it flexible and
able to produce every graph I wanted in a reproducable way. 
I guess I got used to the way Stata works, and thus I am 
less likely to see disadvantages. Can you elobarate on what 
can be done with SigmaPlot that can't be done in Stata (or 
is harder in Stata)?
