A blog about R

I keep finding more and more blogs to read. Today via a post on Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science I ran across one called Revolutions that is all about R. I learned a lot just reading the last four or five posts.

REvolution Computing is a company that provides value added to the open source R software. They produce an optimized version of R caled Revolution R. From their website:

REvolution R runs many computationally-intensive programs faster, especially on multiprocessor systems. REvolution R is built with high-performance compilers and linked with computational libraries that take advantage of multiple processors simultaneously to reduce the time to complete many common mathematical operations. You do not need to modify your code to benefit from these optimizations.

The software is available for free download.
