I agree; seems to me like it will be much easier for new users to find PSPP.

The links you've added make it easy to compare PSPP versions available
for various platforms and it's interesting to see that Windows is the
platform that gets newest releases first.  On Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu,
OpenSUSE, or FreeBSD, I'd be running 0.8.5 whereas Windows has 0.9.0. I
don't know what Gnewsense is, but the latest package at that link was
2.5 years old.  I know you can always download and make the source
(except, of course, when you cannot--I cannot make PSPPIRE on Centos 6).

I wonder if we'd have fewer Windows complaints if it weren't the first
platform to get new versions...  Of course, that also means that they're
first to get new fixes...

This analysis actually changes my plans. I was going to install Centos 7
on a new computer but now I think I'll use Fedora.
