      http://www.r-project.org/

      R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues. R can be considered as a different implementation of S. There are some important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered under R.

      R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible. The S language is often the vehicle of choice for research in statistical methodology, and R provides an Open Source route to participation in that activity.

      R is for loozers who can't afford SAS/STAT or STATA. (or when you want run Bayesian regressions)

      It's free so its great. But nearly everyone I know who uses it or teaches it does so for very specific applications and routinely use SAS and STATA first.
