I'm looking for a Windows distribution of TeX that works with  R, after a 
few years' absence from Windows. On Duncan Murdoch's Rtools page fptex is 
still recommended, but it turns out that fptex is "defunct" as of May 2005,


So, what is suggested? TUG (tug.org) recommends something called proTeXt,
which is said to be "based on MiKTeX", for Windows users. Since MikTeX 
could be used with  R, that sounds like a good alternative.

Any comments to that?
