If PSPP could expose a public API then developers on any platform would be encouraged to build little or big applications on top of it. Imitating SPSS to the point of copying its cathedral model seems like excessive zeal to me. It also exposes the developer team to this type of discussions and recriminations. As a (daytime) Windows user I apologize for our presumption, our lack of participation and (to Friedrich) our lack of sense of humour.

I agree (both with this comment and Mark's perception that PSPP could be seen as "GNU/Linux first"). I agree also that the remedy is more involvement from Windows users and programmers. -Alan
