I did some statistical work with R (http://www.r-project.org/) a  
couple of years ago at university. I couldn't help you now, but I know  
it works, it is free, it is licensed under the GPL and it is cross- 
platform. It is an open-source implementation of the S language, if  
you're familiar with that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S_(programming_language)
