If you have serious data sets (i.e. much data and/or analysis) I would
recommend against Deltagraph (mostly business level) and suggest you try
Kaliedagraph (mid-level scientific graphics) or Igor PRO (industrial
strength graphics program).  The latter is the choice of most serious
users. (sure to start a flame war, but no one will deny the high level of
robustness of Igor).
