I got the following comment from the reviewer of a paper (describing an algorithm implemented in R) that I submitted to BMC Bioinformatics:

"Finally, which useful for exploratory work and some prototyping, neither R nor S-Plus are appropriate environments for deploying user applications that would receive much use."

I can certainly respond by pointing out that CRAN contains more than 2000 packages and Bioconductor contains more than 350. However, does anyone have statistics on how often R (and possibly some R packages) are downloaded, or on how many people actually use R?
