RE: st: Stata vs SPSS
Very general grumbles like this are unanswerable
by StataCorp or by the community of user-programmers.
Unsurprisingly every user wants a powerful system that
does what they want, but even people who think their
graphical needs are relatively simple usually turn
out to want a great deal of flexibility, as much as
that provided or even more so.
What precisely is it that "really needs some attention"?
Could we please see a wish list or even an example
substantiating your criticisms?
