Finding R

Yesterday an acquaintance sent an email that mentioned R. It had come up in another context last week, so thinking that I should find out more about it, I turned to Google. But I thought, you cannot just search for "R", that will bring up the whole world. So I searched for "r data visualization". Nothing useful.

As I knew that R is an open source project, I went to Sourceforge, but the search key there has to be at least 3 characters, so that did not work. Another thought is that my acquaintance had just been to the user conference, cutely called useR. Google that!

As it happens, if I had just searched for R, I would have found what I was looking for. What do you know!
