To me, an added bonus of Emacs + ESS is that you can remove the "On Linux platform", above. Emacs is one of the very few (only?) programmer's text editor with a good R mode that runs on all platforms where R runs: Unix/Linux, Windows (http://vgoulet.act.ulaval.ca/emacs) and MacOS (http://aquamacs.org). On whatever platform I need to work, I can use the same tools. Furthermore, M-w and C-y are the *correct* keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste! :-D

Wade, when you write: "I want to switch to Linux, but can't find much in the way of a text editor in sync with R", you didn't look very hard, now did you? ;-)
