Wensui, I can not agree with u any more. The situation is much more similar in computational biology field when I was graduate.

At that time, Glimmer is the best gene prediction software for bacterial genome invented by NIH. Then our group invented a software name "Zcurve" which is better then Glimmer.

As far as I know, Zcurve is the open source software. Anyway, SAS will face more and more competition as R grows so fast

I noticed that in sugi survey this year, sas asked questions about open source software. it seems they start realizing the competition from open source software such as R or python. As I talked to a R&D guy in stat, he told me that he often uses result from R to compare with the one from SAS.
