RStudio 0.92.44 Release: Try It! You’ll Be Surprised!

I recently downloaded RStudio’s v0.92.44 release, and, I must say, it’s light! I think I could even run it on a netbook, which is great for analysis on-the-go. I’ll likely uninstall Eclipse-StatET at this point and go with RStudio. Not only is it light, but the layout and features are exactly what I wanted from an R app.
 

Here’s a screen shot (click for full size) (FIXED):

RStudio.Capture


If you haven’t given this a try, I highly recommend you do. It runs on all popular platforms, and uses the Qt widget library. Although I’m not a fanboy of Qt, this is one case where Qt seems to really shine.

RStudio can be downloaded here.

I know its says it's a beta version, but Is it stable to work with?

Actually, I have used RStudio on a netbook, and it works fine (though the real estate is limited). I found on my netbook it is better if I connect to my linux server which has RStudio Server on it. Works just like the desktop, but much faster since my server is a bit heavier than my netbook :)
