I ran the simple script bellow and received shoking results. It was complied for about 15 seconds !!! on modern Intel Core Duo computer.

i=0;
while(i<5000000)
{

    i=i+1;
}

Using Visual Basic I can complete the same script (simple loop of 5000000 itterations) in 0.1 sec.
Is it realy R not suitable for huge computing.
