Hey, you've missed some:
* Flexible pricing
(SAS doesn't move one inch for small companies (30.000 $ license-fees
* Switching between operating-systems at no extra cost
(new OS - new game)
* _Printed_ documentation is included at no extra cost
(calculate some 500 $ extra)
* Excellent technical support (at least in germany)
(technical support - what technical support?)
But to save the day: SAS-L is making up at least for the last point!
I'm sure others can provide even more but, for starters:
*more data manipulation capabilities
*more analytical capabilities and routines
*more user control concerning how statistics are computed
*more current users (I think), thus more individuals to collaborate with
*more interfaces with current technological and analytical trends
