What is R?
R is a free, open source statistical programming language that is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. It consists of the base or core R software as well as add-on packages that extend functionality. R is based on the language S which was developed in the 1970s primarily by John Chambers, Rick Becker and Allan Wilks. In the 1990s Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman created R and shortly after made it freely available under the GNU General Public License. R continues to be maintained by the R Development Core Team and major releases are published about twice per year.
