Also, a lot of universities in the US have site licenses that are
covered centrally, so the students have access to SAS, SPSS, etc. in
their labs (our university has a 50000 user licenses for both). I am
not sure Stata operates under this concept.

The best intro stat book I've seen was Utts, "Seeing through
Statistics". Her examples are easy, and you can code all of them in
Stata without major troubles.

In the Netherlands students can buy SPSS legally for 15
euros, which I think is a very smart marketing trick. This
way there is no way I can convince my collegues that I
should teach Stata instead of SPSS. Ones our students
finished their education they will continue to use the
program they were initially taught, and let their company
pay the full costs of a business license.
