Default R-Studio

If you are doing this module - you should download R-Studio. Not the dumb version the Module recommends.

R-Studio is soooo much easier.
And you can save your code in script files. Something else the module doesn't seem to cover.

The module should actually provide script files with the code they cover - along with useful comments added.

Not doing SOA stuff, but I would recommend R-Studio if one is to be using R in any case.
