I'm wondering if anyone has written a script to automate this job for
Windows. I mainly use Ubuntu, so I do not care much since it is easy
under Debian/Ubuntu, but I remember the boring process of updating R
under Windows: uninstall the current version, go to CRAN, download,
install, check a few checkboxes and sometimes mess around old
packages. Every time R is updated, there will be another series of
click click click...
