Thanks to Oliver Robinson for pointing this out to me: In MXG Newsletters Numbers 50 and 51 Barry Merrill discusses MXG / WPS support in what I think is a detailed and fair way. (Oliver, for the record, works for WPC who develop WPS.)

Barry and I discussed WPS and MXG over a year ago. I think WPS has come a long way in this time and is now a very credible alternative to SAS for many applications, having a very high degree of programming language compatibility. As Barry notes, it’s available for both z/OS and Windows.

Perhaps I’ll even get round to learning SAS one day. I have the blue book already, of course.
