SPSS has delivered on its promise to bring its stats-modelling application, SPSS 10.0, to the Mac platform after a five-year break.

The company is already shipping the product – the world’s best-selling desktop statistical software tool. The Mac port was developed with the help of software developer MacKiev.

SPSS 10.0 offers predictive statistical modelling and analysis. Information can be delivered in easy-to-read reports. It runs as a native-Mac OS application, and offers a Mac-friendly GUI (graphical user interface).

The server version will ship later this year. The product is expected to cost £677.
