It is easy to devolve into visceral response mode, lose objectivity and slip into intolerance. R, S, S-Plus, SAS, PASW (nee SPSS), STATA, are all tools. Each has strengths and weaknesses. No one is inherently better, or worse than the other. The quality of the results produced by anyone of them is a function of the abilities of the person who manipulates them. Don't expect quality work from any program unless the person running the program knows what he, or she is doing!

To simplify things, R + LyX could also be a solution.
