Today, the R is one of the fastest growing statistical computing software and is a direct competitor to SAS, SPSS, Minitab, Stat and others established statistical software. The SPSS founder, who also started a R software company, Dr Norman Nie, during one of the interview, simply put that R as one the most powerful statistical computing language on the planet and there is no statistical equation that cannot be calculated in R.

R is a software environment for statistical computing and graphics that can run on UNIX, Linux, Windows and Macintosh platforms. The R software originated from AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1984 and currently administrated by the R Foundation, based in Austria. The foundation is a non-profit organization working in the public interest and has the charter to advance the R to provide a free and open source software environment.

There are hundreds of institutions of higher learning, research institutions and companies around the world such as AT&T, Google, Merck, Shell, Stanford University, John Hopkins University and others support the R Foundation initiative. The R has huge support from the communities, and in fact it has earned the reputation to has the latest and most sophisticated statistical algorithm that is developed by professor of statistics and mathematics.
