Software for AP Statistics

Is anyone exploring the possibilities for software support of the AP
Statistics Course? I see a lot of powerful engines that are comprehensive,
large and
expensive. I also see a few shareware packages, some large, but which in
most cases have drawbacks, most of them in the area of the design interface.
I dont think it is too early to start a serious for titles that are

(a) relatively inexpensive,
(b) dual (at least) platform Mac, Windows/Dos would also be nice to have OS2
(c) comprehensive or a suite of programs

We also need to look at the graphing calculator, by the time that the exam
comes round, I expect that the picture of the calculator capabilities will
have changed dramatically.

Another need is a specification of the capablities of the software.

We can keep the responses archived somewhere and periodically summarize.
