Is running R directly on the server machine and displaying via X or Xvnc an option?

Subject: [R] client-server setup for R

I am currently the only use-R at my company, but they are considering buy a more powerful server and letting multiple people use it. They asked me if R supports client-server setups. I know S+ has a server version that does that. I didn't find anything about that on CRAN, but hopefully someone can correct me.

I did see some stuff about R web servers ( ) and that looked very interesting, but I don't know which one is best and I don't want to spend all my time in HTML programming to make front ends of all the users. If I have no choice but to go the web server route, which one is the most mature?

If I can't show them a pluasible solution, IT will make use buy S+ server and I will have to modify all my code to make it work. I really enjoy working in R.
