Is there any license issues that need to be taken in consideration, any fees to pay by the company? I know there are answers to this in the FAQs but I didn't really understand the legal language. Could you therefore just give me concrete answers?

This question has (up to now) lead to contributions from representives 
for two commercial interfaces to R.  Personally, I do not object to 
that, these contibutions add to the information about the usage of R. 
Nevertheless, does anybody know anything about these products?  E.g.: 
what are the costs for academic users?  How about the basic difference 
between the basically open-ended approach and the rather closed menu 
oriented approach?

That is only some or the questions I have after looking at the 
respective web pages.  Those questions are, in respect to the original 
thread, a sidetrack, but may nevertheless be of interest to R users.
