Although I haven't bought it, in my opinion, SigmaPlot Win V2 is a rip off.

Version 1.0 was a disaster and so full of bugs they issued 1.02 free. Then,
about three months later they offered V2. As far as I can see this is just a
relabelled V1.02 with a few minor enhancements. I objected to the upgrade 
cost so soon after buying V1, usually if a software company brings out a new
version within six months of you buying the last version, you get it for the
price of the disks. I received a sympathetic reply from the local distributors
who passed on my comments to JANDEl, who have never responded. 

I bought PRISM instead.
