Yes, it’s in light of R that I’m surprised to see SPSS. R was already starting to displace it when I was in college in the mid-2000s. A decade and a half later, the R ecosystem has grown tremendously and produced some really powerful tools for visualizing, exploring, slicing, and dicing data. (I’m off to one side being glad it’s all there should I need it one day, while I transform data from poorly-understood format A to ill-defined format B for 99% of the time.)
