[News] R Comes to (Native) KDE, Katapult Rave

Hash: SHA1

Science and KDE: rkward

,----[ Quote ]
| rkward is a nice frontend for the R programming language, which adds a GUI 
| with the power of KDE to R. Unfortunately the program is still somewhat 
| unstable (also shown by a warning when you run it) and its main developer has 
| currently very little time to work on it. In case you may want to help, you 
| can hop to the rkward-devel mailing list.    


Katapult Your Programs!

,----[ Quote ]
| This is the distinct advantage Linux has over Windows.  Instead of a few 
| hundred employees (at a company like Microsoft or Adobe) creating new 
| software applications, the Linux world has thousands of users and advocates 
| creating and improving software.    



Data Analysts Captivated by R’s Power

| It is also free. R is an open-source program, and its popularity reflects a
| shift in the type of software used inside corporations. Open-source software
| is free for anyone to use and modify. I.B.M., Hewlett-Packard and Dell make
| billions of dollars a year selling servers that run the open-source Linux
| operating system, which competes with Windows from Microsoft. Most Web sites
| are displayed using an open-source application called Apache, and companies
| increasingly rely on the open-source MySQL database to store their critical
| information. Many people view the end results of all this technology via the
| Firefox Web browser, also open-source software.



R: A (Statistically) Significant Language

,----[ Quote ]
| When people talk about big, successful open-source projects, they often think
| about software that can be used in large organizations. So we hear a great
| deal about the Linux operating system, the MySQL database, and even Ruby on
| Rails as a framework for developing Web applications.  

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
