Oops, I meant to write "R does not have a User Guide".

Just to explain this further, the citation() function asks me to cite a "Manual" with the title "R: A language and environment for statistical computing". Although R comes with excellent documentation, including at least 6 manuals on different aspects of the software, no manual or document with that title actually exists, as far as I know.
