SalStat seems to be aiming for something that works like SPSS for
Windows (i.e. a spreadsheet-like interface). This may be a good target for
OIO datasets to be exported into (as an alternative to SPSS). However,
this kind of user interface is not optimal for browser access.
From reading the SalStat web page, a major aim is to create this kind of
"modern" interface. What I am not clear about is why the SalStat team
decided to implement the stats routines de novo? For example, why did they
decide not to use R? In my naive view, I think it may save some time and
encourage collaboration if they built a SPSS-like interface for R
I have not have time to do this yet but I think it is not hard to build
a good web-interface that use R routines. Would you be interested in such
