    This forum will sooner becoming a how to do Minitab kinda newsgroup. Minitab users shall channel their FAQ problems to Minitab support.
    I do not know why consultants are busy promoting Minitab. For earning good commissions from them? Maybe. A bunch of cheaper and better software can do the same job as Minitab.

    How I know you get the commissions or not from Minitab?
    I am not interested to promote other commercial softwares as well. The point is those people buy the software (and not a pirated copy) shall get supports from the company.

    Not wanting to discuss the commission on software, is the package called “Statistica” popular at all in the US??. Are you familiar with this package at all.

    My question is to your point of there being better, less expensive software. I do not know that to be true. Please help.

        Johnny, yes Statistica is available in the U.S.  I can’t vouch for its popularity but I prefer it to Minitab. Its graphics are the best I’ve ever seen and it is very user friendly with respect to data importation and data exchange particularly with SAS which is my analytical tool of choice. As a stand alone, its analytical capabilities are equal to Minitab.  It is, however, more expensive than Minitab.

    Robert thanks for the feedback. The frustrating thing is that when I say I have experience with statistica, people dont even know statistica, but they know minitab very well. On my cv I have statistica as a package and not minitab and so companies are asking for minitab experience.

    Johnny,
      I’ve used Minitab and at my last place of employment my engineers and I routinely switched between Minitab and Statistica for both analysis and graphing. They had Minitab as part of their Six Sigma training and I brought Statistica in house because of my need for a good graphics package to go along with SAS. 
      I think it would be fair for you to say in any future interview that, while your C.V. says Statistica, your familiarity with that package means you will have very little trouble getting up to speed with respect to using Minitab.
