          It came up for me. However, that's just a speed comparison, which said that R 1.9.0 was comparable with the best available, better than most but not necessarily the best depending on the task.

           I would think you might be more concerned with accuracy and ease of use, and I suggest you Google and do an R site search, as I suggested. This has been discussed repeately on this list, and a search should expose many useful comments.
