Read the "Intro to R tutorial" that ships with R. Alternatively, there are
also many good online tutorials, some free, some not. You'll need to spend
some time and effort to learn R's basic data structures and paradigms even
if you don't get involved in any serious programming.
If this is not something you are willing or able to do, you might check
here for a point and click GUI interface that give you access to some of
R's basic functionality: http://socserv.mcmaster.ca/jfox/Misc/Rcmdr/ . You
will have to determine whether this serves your needs and priorities of
"The trouble with having an open mind is that people keep coming along and
sticking things into it."
