No, it was precisely my *point* that Matlab is proprietary.
The medical researchers I knew a few years ago refused to use
R on the grounds that the international agencies they dealt
with all used SAS, which is proprietary. So I am wondering
if "ALL programs that our employees/PROVIDERS use" includes
things like Windows, Excel, SAS, Matlab, Oracle, DB2, ..."
and if so how the IT department could credibly vet them.
