Cover Story: See JMP For Linux at LinuxWorld Expo!


JMP for Linux is set to make its public debut at the LinuxWorld East Expo in New York City, January 21-24, 2003. If you'd like to get your first glimpse of this new product-in-the-making, we welcome you to visit us at Booth 114 for a brief demonstration.

"We're going to be showing a pre-Beta version of the software," said Richard Potter, lead developer for JMP host platforms, "so it won't be as polished as the Macintosh and Windows versions currently in release. But we are going to demonstrate some of the key features of JMP, such as real-time data capture, ODBC support, DOE (Design of Experiments), and JSL (JMP Scripting Language). We've had such a tremendous response from Linux users to our website survey, that we wanted to give those users a chance to see how the product is coming along."

JMP Version 5 for Linux

JMP for Linux will contain the same features as its Windows and Macintosh counterparts, but with a Linux look and feel to the GUI (Graphical User Interface).


In an effort to incorporate the capabilities most needed by the Linux audience, JMP has developed a survey that asks users for feedback on topics such as database support, real-time data capture and preferred packaging for a statistical application, just to name a few examples. This survey can be found at

The listings also contain a link to the training page on each country's website, which you can follow for course schedules, contact information, and more.

Discount Licensing and FREE Training Materials for Academics

Need a cost-effective tool for teaching statistics in your classroom? JMP has the answer with two new annual licensing programs for qualifying colleges and universities:

Both of these programs are for an unlimited number of users (students and faculty) and are available at a discount price.

In addition, SAS Higher Education Consulting provides FREE JMP course materials to universities via our Academic Trainer's program. The program kits include an electronic copy of the materials we use in JMP courses (PowerPoint files, PDF files for printing, DOC files, and data).
