I have recently started a new job at an NHS hospital in Scotland. Since I took up this post 6 months ago I have had an ongoing dispute with the IT secutiry dept. who refuse to install R on my computer. I previously worked in another branch of the NHS where R was widely used and yet there is nothing I can say which will persuade the IT dept here to even visit the website! With some help from our head of department, they have now agreed to install R but only if they receive an email from 'R' ensuring that it is licensed for commercial use, is compaitable with Windows XP and will not affect the networked computer system here. My only other option for data anlaysis is Excel, we have no money for S-plus or any other stats programme. Can anyone suggest anything or send me a suitable email?  

Many thanks,
Georgina
