ViSta has good dynamic/interactive graphics, happens to run better
under Windows and Macs than Unix (I did the original unix port, so
might as well be my fault), and has a nice GUI targetted at
statistical analyses (I'm thinking of the worksheets, not the
"minitab/spss/blah pull-down menu st*ff"), in fact, one of the best
that I've seen for teaching how to analyze data.

As far as presentation or report-quality graphics, it's pretty
useless, though.

And while being pretty advanced for most features, it's lacking
integration with the survival and GEE packages for XLispStat, which is
perhaps its only real failing.

(no comments on the other packages brought up).
