Since I always get vague notions from some of the SAS folks I talk to,
I figured it was easier to try here. I "may" be negotiating a new
position in the next month, and one of the things I will be asking for
is for "University XYZ" to buy me SAS (they don't currently license
SAS seems to think of everything and everyone in terms of mega-license
purchases. All I want is my very own personal copy! Could anyone who
has a even remotely informed clue please give me an idea how much $$$
we're talking about, either for PC or UNIX platforms (I use either).
Specifically, academic pricing. Unlike business-types, I don't have
the option of writing everying off as a business expense.
Further, is it a one-time price, or does SAS soak us for annual fees
Thanks very much in advance. If you could e.mail me your replies as
well as posting them, I'd appreciate it muchly...
