Windows download link on gnu.org

I was just refreshing my Windows copy of PSPP and I was reflecting on the trouble that Windows users have in downloading and I think some simple changes to the gnu.org download page could make it a lot easier on them.

I always go to the gnu.org page:

https://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/get.html

And on that page, there's a series of bullets for various operating systems, including Windows but Windows has no clickable link (whereas the others all do have clickable links).  Why is this? Shouldn't we link to pspp.awardspace.com?  Or at least add an HTML anchor so that you can click and it will scroll down to the awardspace.com link?



Also, the actual link for the windows is a bullet further down the page under "MS Windows" that says "XP and up".  Couldn't it say "All recent Windows (XP and up)" or "Windows executable (XP and up)" or something similar? I don't know that current Windows users will know what "XP" and "and up" and "binaries" mean...

I know GNU hates Windows (don't we all) but I hope that doesn't extend to hating Windows users... These simple changes would help non-technical Windows users find the download link a lot easier.

Hi All:
I was a dedicated spss user til I retired and unable to access cheap version.  Want to use pspp, but am not savy enuf to understand how to download.  Can someone give a brief step by step?  I have searched and all the links/discussions so far are too complex for a non-programmer. 

Thanks!

can parse.

Thanks!

RE: PSPP, en español, in spanish

I recommend you download PSPP for Windows in: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pspp4windows/

Version 8.5 is stable. If you submit a problem, you can review the list of fixed issues and install a
development version.

You read the FAQ?
In Spanish:

¿Cómo puedo configurar el idioma de la interfaz de usuario de PSPP?
PSPP respeta la configuración regional del entorno (Sistema Operativo). Entonces si, por ejemplo el
sistema operativo (o el usuario que ha iniciado sesión) se establece en portugués, entonces en ese
idioma se mostrará PSPP.
Cómo cambiar el idioma del entorno depende del sistema operativo. Por ejemplo en GNU o GNU/Linux puedes
usar el comando de exportación LANG=pt_PT (Portugués hablado en Portugal) o LANG=pt_BR para
Portugués hablado en Brasil. Esto debería funcionar para todos los sistemas operativos basados en
POSIX. Para otros tendrá que consultar la documentación del sistema operativo.

You might ask a Windows user how to perform this task. My advice is to have a user in Windows in Spanish language.

PSPP, en español, in spanish

Estimados dirigentes de "gnu.org": 

Consigo descargar el programa PSPP, pero siempre viene en el idioma inglés, ya vi en tutoriales que existe el programa en español.
Como hago para descargar el programa PSPP en español.
Agradezco anticipadamente.

Re: PSPP for Windows

When a Windows developer comes along and starts contributing to PSPP,
PSPP will get better on Windows.  None of the current developers uses
Windows, so of course it doesn't work well there.

GSoC 2016 for PSPP

I've seen mentioned a few times the GSoC.
 Do you think it would be good to have a wiki or web section of PSPP to mention it?

 It could be used to the style used in LibreOffice. Enthusiasts could see the possible ideas to work in PSPP.
It could also serve to promote PSPP and make visible the need to volunteer for the project.

https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/GSoC/Ideas

Ideas:
- Complete migration to GTK3

 - Add elements in the GUI (PSPP currently supported in commands)
http://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/manual/html_node/Command-Index.html#Command-Index

- Migrating to gnuplot for generating charts -> http://www.gnuplot.info/
 
- Import of DTA files --> http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?dta

 - Renewal of graphics (You can seek help from the GNOME or LibreOffice Design project working with tango icons)
https://github.com/LibreOffice/core/tree/master/icon-themes/tango
https://github.com/GNOME/adwaita-icon-theme
http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Icon_Library

- Improving ports to Windows and OS X

I discusses off list with this user. It was related to non-ascii characters in the file name. Surprisingly it saving works with newer version, but:
- opening the file again doesn't work. As John you expected, but it seems to work on my test computer????
- with the snapshot of november 5, it works, but the computer crashes with a MSWindows message after entering about 50 records. I had no time yet to try to reproduce this.

Have fun
