[R] a UNIX vs. Windows package question, please

Here is another question that I am puzzled about: I had the (incorrect)
impression that if I had Rtools on a Windows machine that I could use any
tar.gz package. However, that is not true.
In particular, I was looking at the rPython package. I do indeed have
Python on this machine. But when I did R CMD INSTALL rPython, I got an
error message that said, "this is a Unix package". Interesting.
Should I just stay with my Ubuntu laptop and behave?
