The owner of the trademark wouldn't have any legal grounds to object, since
we explicitly say that it's an *alternative to* SPSS.  We're not claiming
(or implying) that we *are* SPSS or that we have the endorsement of the 
trademark owner.

But in fact, I agree with you.  The "free alternative to SPSS" is appropriate 
the web site, because it'll be found by search engines.  But once somebody has 
installed it, presumably they know what it is - so we no longer have any 
to mention the non-free software.
