Actually their other story posted here re the 3 major record companies
dropping DRM was more of the scoop .. and the 'R' article is way buried
in their business section ..

Also it appears the point of this article was more to do with the current
popularity of the R language, eg a world where google says, '“R is really
important to the point that it’s hard to overvalue it,” said Daryl
Pregibon, a research scientist at Google, which uses the software widely.'
rather than as an intro for programming newbies. But .. whatever, Richard.
