I would like to be able to purchase a home license for JMP. MATLAB, Mathematica, Mathcad and LabVIEW all now offer a home license.

Good one. I would love to work on JMP from home too provided the license fee is affordable or perhaps instead of yearly fee make it afforable with a monthly subscription fee for light users.
It's puzzling why "JMP Home" doesn't exist. There's certainly a market for it. They could limit the data sizes it'll handle, limit certain advanced functionalities, and/or limit access to support.
I purchased multiple versions of academic licenses from Maple, Matlab, Mathmatica, and Visual Studio (pre-Express versions, that is) for use while in school. All of those licenses allow for continued use at home after one's academic career is over, as well (and without a subscription fee!). While JMP Academic is the most affordable version, it's limited to students and requires a subscription. The least expensive non-academic option available, JMP Standard, is $1785 right now. For home use, that's simply a non-starter. It would be really nice to have JMP available at home, too.
I'd love to play around with using JMP on things like Kaggle, but I'd rather not use work related equipment for that and the full license is a bit excessive for a side hobby. Something on parity with Microsoft Office 365 would open up that opportunity.
At least having a graph builder app fpr PC would be good start.It would enable users to escape the hell of using excel for plotting graphs
There is a graph builder app for Ipad, but why on earth not for android?? and PC?
Also making the student license a little less USA-centric would be nice... not just restricted to .edu...
It's been two years since my last post here. JMP has gone down from $1785 to $1500 (yearly) and there's now a subscription option for $125/month. I suppose this is an improvement but both of these options still seem out of reach to the home user, especially when I consider that the cost of one month of the subscription is comparable to the one-time/life cost of any of those other software packages. Granted, those were academic licenses purchased while in school, but they have their limitations and cannot be upgraded. I'd still be willing to pay $100-200, once, for a limited capability, version-locked personal copy of JMP.
I would also like to see a personal use license available at a reasonable cost or free. I have used JMP almost since it first came on the market but with retirement coming very soon I would still like to have access to it for hobby activities but current pricing is prohibitive on a pension income!
