Confirmed. -> pspp and (from the README
under pspp):
This is the distribution archive for PSPP, a free, compatible
replacement for the statistical program SPSS.  PSPP was originally
named Fiasco.

Currently PSPP source code is available from the following sites:


This site always has the latest sources for PSPP and patches from
earlier versions.


This site has source code tarballs for present and past versions, as
well as patches.  Unfortunately, this site is not available from
mid-December to mid-January or mid-May to mid-August.

Binaries are not yet available for any OS.
Thanks for the responses!
