Somebody pointed me that R is the best open source available for statistical computing. Are there functions to do Holt Winters and Box Jenkins time series prediction in R? If there is none, can some one point me a good GNU/freeware to do the sales forecasting using the above algorithms?

Try "help(library=ts)" once you have a prompt. R does both Holt-Winters and
Arima.  Using ts objects is not entirely trivial, though.


Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
