I use R as a stand-alone app to analyze simple, rectangular social data files.
Use of R in higher education. R Commander. Running R online (see http://user.cs.tu-berlin.de/~ulfi/cgi-bin/r-online/r-online.cgi) -- and why anyone would want to do this.
Sure, though I'm a pedestrian when it comes to using R.
I teach in the social sciences at San Francisco State. I'm always torn between teaching students packages like SPSS (hate it but it's popular) and R (love it but worry that I'm messing up student resumes).
