Until you begin the process of becoming a programmer you won't be able to make much use of R regardless of which computer or operating system you run it on. Fortunately such a transformation is doable, but you have to believe it is possible or you won't work to make it happen... and transformation does take some work.

All true. Some of us who are running R on Macs chose to do so at a time when Windoze machines were limited to 4G (actually 2.5 Gigs effectively) and we wanted a bit more headroom for larger objects. (I started back in the days of CP/M.) It wasn't the possibility of having dropdown menus, but rather the fact that it was a reasonable GUI bolted on top of a Unix box.
If you want dropdown menus, then consider the Rcmdr package which runs in all of the three strains of OSes that are supported by the R Core. The RStudio effort is also a nice facility to ease the transition to "real programming".
But if you really don't want to exert any effort and simply want a "non-programming package", then buy a seat for the JMP program. (Not cheap.)
