I'm a beginner of R.
I find it absoluty fantastic, flexible and very extensible.
For the moment only a curiosity.. Why the name R? (are they perhaps the
initials of Robert Gentleman and Ross Ihaka?, or is the name correlated with
S language?)
Sorry for my poor question but I am very curious

Thank in advance
Paolo C.
