64-Bit JMP for Linux
Besides JMP, the only statistical software available on the Linux desktop today is an open-source product called R. It has considerable analytical depth and its open-source nature allows statisticians who also have computer programming talent to extend R. However, for the vast majority of people working in statistics today, JMP is generally acknowledged to be a better choice. JMP has an intuitive graphical user interface, a broad range of deep analytical capabilities and comprehensive professionally written documentation. JMP customers have the confidence that their investment is backed by SAS's award-winning, PhD-staffed quality assurance, technical support and professional training and consulting services. SAS boasts a 30-year record of continuous growth, so JMP customers know they can count on SAS and JMP to be around for the long haul.
“People keep wondering if Linux will ever be a serious contender in the desktop market”, says Potter. “It's been disappointing to Linux enthusiasts that this hasn't yet happened. Now, with the availability of affordable 64-bit desktop machines, we might start to see that change”, Potter says. He continues:
From the server perspective, the Linux operating system is generally recognized to be more reliable and secure at a lower cost of ownership than the alternatives.
Many research scientists and engineers would have liked to adopt Linux on their desktops too. They have refrained from doing so, however, because the applications they depended upon and the computing power they needed simply weren't there. Now those obstacles are gone.
As more of the applications that researchers depend upon, like JMP, become available for 64-bit Linux, its share of the desktop market can only grow.
Erin Vang, International Program Manager for JMP R&D at SAS, built JMP's localization and internationalization program. Previously, she was documentation and localization manager for Abacus Concepts (StatView) and technical writer and quality assurance manager for SYSTAT. She holds a B.Mus. in music performance, music history and math from St. Olaf College and an M.Mus. in horn performance from Northwestern University.
