    Although Uwe has got a few points there, I dont thinks he's completely fair.

    That Crawley does not actively contributing to R development or mailing lists or does not quote the R-development team within the book seems trivial. Although the book title (THE R BOOK) might indeed be a little over the top.

    For those new to R a GUI interface could be nice.

    R Commander is a nice little GUI that can do some nice things for you. I've only used it on Ubuntu which you can get through the software manager but you can get it for windows/mac/linux (or so I've read).

    I personally prefer the command line but to each their own.

    I read feedback on the R book and yes, it did get slammed a bit in th reviews.
    I bought it anyway.

    The disscussion on statistical theory is very good and chapter 4 on the creation/use/manipulation of data frames is very useful. Overall I like it and its nice to have a REAL book as a reference sometimes. Though I seem to always return to the package manuals and online help.

    BTW,

    "Mixed effects models in S and S-plus" by Pinheiro and Bates is worth every cent. Probably the only reference to mixed effects models you'll ever need.

    Re: Info for R users (Links, Manuals, Books, etc.)

    Windows:
    For the people that dont yet know about its existence:
    http://notepad-plus-plus.org/

    in combination with: http://sourceforge.net/projects/npptor/

    Drop TINN-R.. it's uselessly slow compared to this one. And this one is the last one you'll need as it has support for most other languages.

    Linux users:
    Just stick to RKward ;-)
