Although it does not appear to be a factor with this search, it is worth
remembering that Google will customize search results for individual
users. I have found with certain computer/linux searches that when I
search from my Google Account I _do_ get different results compared to
when I am not logged into my google account. I tried this search and was
still able to easily find R related materials, but it is worth
remembering that for those of us who use Google services heavily and
have accounts, our results may differ.
