Microsoft Joins the Linux Foundation R Consortium

Microsoft has announced that it will be joining the Linux Foundation's R Consortium. R is a leading statistical and analysis language that has been in heavy use for some time. Microsoft says that in the future Microsoft will be adding more support for R in their products.
R is especially popular in big data processing, large financial data analysis and super computing research applications.

The R Programming Language from Wikipedia.

R Code Sample:
library(caTools) # external package providing write.gif function jet.colors < colorRampPalette(c("#00007F", "blue", "#007FFF", "cyan", "#7FFF7F", "yellow", "#FF7F00", "red", "#7F0000")) m < 1000 # define size C < complex( real=rep(seq(1.8,0.6, length.out=m), each=m ), imag=rep(seq(1.2,1.2, length.out=m), m ) ) C < matrix(C,m,m) # reshape as square matrix of complex numbers Z < 0 # initialize Z to zero X < array(0, c(m,m,20)) # initialize output 3D array for (k in 1:20) { # loop with 20 iterations Z < Z^2+C # the central difference equation X[,,k] < exp(abs(Z)) # capture results } write.gif(X, "Mandelbrot.gif", col=jet.colors, delay=800)

When I was working on Wall St., R was very common there. I supported a lot of R users.

I guess that you could say that after analysis from this, that the trades we made were R rated! LOL
Oh man it is a good thing that the weekend is coming up.

Not good man, not good.
