I enjoy using SPSS because it

I enjoy using SPSS because it's got a pretty useable interface with lots of powerful statistical, data mining, etc tools available.  The only problem is that the free documentation is kind of spotty, so if you're really stuck, you'll have to shell out some big bucks to get the official SPSS manual.  But for what I'm doing (lots and lots of survival analyses), it's more than enough.
R is also a very useful stats package.  In fact, it was recently covered in a NY Times article:
