ABCstat was developed in 1995 for the type of modern statistical data analysis most useful in practice and especially for linear regression analyses using a variety of approaches. The program was developped for Mac OS classic and designed for easy use and full interactivity.
This application was never ported to a modern operating system. However you can still run it through a tool like SheepShaver (for Linux or Mac OS X)  which makes it possible to install a Mac OS 9.0.4 runtime environment on a modern computer.
