I was looking at software recently, after deciding to give students a choice in what they used. This also gives them more responsibility. Anyway, to me it seems Stata has changed a lot more since I started using it than has Minitab. If anything, Minitab has focused more on ease of use and product improvement for business processes, in the same way SPSS has come to advertise itself. So if DOE, six sigma and such are what's on the table, maybe JMP or Minitab will be better suited.




Also note:

"Stata: Data Analysis and Statistical Software"

"Minitab: Software for Quality Improvement"

and the ability of Stata to run on Linux and Macs.
