I think the software list from the main statistics article should be merged into List of statistical packages. It's of limited relevance to the main statistics article. Not sure of the protocol for this so I won't do it myself!

Comparison of statistical packages[edit]

(Table by User:Alexeysim06 moved to Comparison of statistical packages)e='font-size:12.0pt;mso-ansi-language:EN-US'>++

This is a good starting point for Comparison of statistical packages & I encourage you to refer to Help:Table to clean this up and start that article. This will need to be broken up into smaller tables, internal wiki-links should be used for all product names & the external URL column should be removed. The price should probably be the MSRP. The "package type" column is a bit awkward, as is the use of two pluses for some fo this. But, as I said, this is important information. --Karnesky 20:03, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for comments! I've started comparison chapter, but have some problems.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexeysim06 (talkcontribs)
I've wikified the ANOVA portion. Please look at the formatting & use this for the rest of the table. Also, please move discussion to the talk page of the comparison. --Karnesky 18:06, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Seems like another categorization would be whether the software can be run on the internet or must be installed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 158.111.5.34 (talk) 15:51, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Add-ons[edit]

Any thoughts on a good treatment for things that are "add-ons" rather than stand-alone, things. For example would it be good to have grouped lists of add-ons for R and Excel, rather than having them in the main lists? I guess the same question arises in the "comparison" article.

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that List of statistical packages be merged into Comparison of statistical packages. The content of the List article is mostly already listed within the Comparison article's tables. Any missing information could be easily transferred from the List, staying well within the context of the Comparison. To be thorough, all that primarily needs to be added to Comparison from List is a new column for a synopsis of each package. And adding any packages not already in the Comparison, of course.

That is a good idea! It is not clear to have 2 lists involving different softwares, these article should definitely be merged. DavidBr (talk) 17:30, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
