Dave,

Perhaps the SAS message is: Don't try it at home. Given the price (of SAS), I concur. On the other hand, if one has decided to run SAS on a home PC for any reasonable purpose and pay, say, $5000 a year, does the difference between XP Home ($200) and XP Pro ($280) make any palpable difference to speak of? The "pimple on the elephant's butt" allegory readily comes to mind... In fact, given the bang-for-the-buck difference between Home and Pro, even if I could not care less about SAS and/or knew nothing about it, the thought of XP Home would never enter my mind.

Now if only SAS V9 were available on Mac OS X natively without the need to run it through the goofy Virtual PC emulator...

Kind regards, ---------------- Paul M. Dorfman Jacksonville, FL ----------------
