Subject: [R] Slightly OT - use of R

I am trying to get a measure of how R compares in usage as a statistical 
platform compared to other software.  I would guess it is the most widely 
used among statisticians at least by virtue of it being open source.

But is there any study to which I can refer?  By asking this list I am not 
exactly adopting a rigorous approach!  

Best wishes
