Well that's certainly a generous offer! As a long time user of NCSS, let me put in my 2 cents worth. This is a first rate package -- I bought the old DOS version years ago to use for stuff Minitab won't do. It is also on the list of recommended software from the College Board. Two or three years ago, Dr. Hintze made available a free student edition of the DOS package. I have used it in workshops for teachers and I demonstrated it at the AP Stats. meeting in San Antonio last summer, where it was a big hit. I have seen the regular Windows version and it is a straightforward Windows application. (The DOS version had a rather unusual interface; I still prefer it to the Windows version, but mostly because I don't care much for Windows to begin with.)
PLEASE, if you have PCs, use a free NCSS rather than a spreadsheet or a software package that comes with a textbook.
