R [1] is an open source tool for doing statistical analysis. It is an
reimplementation of S-Plus [2] and uses the scripting language  of
S-Plus for interaction. The learning curve is therefore typically
longer than with a graphical user interface. But R creates
professional graphics which can be exported to many formats (pdf, png,
etc.).

In the case you want to use it, there is a nice alternative GUI
written in Java [3] called JGR.
