Last month TDWI's James Powell interviewed Revolution CEO Norman Nie and published the interview as "R 101". The article answers some of the basic questions about R, such as:

  • What is R? 
  • Why is R well-suited for predictive analytics?
  • Why is R superior?
  • How easy is it to learn R? 
  • Where is R headed?

… and much more. Read the full article at TDWI for the answers.
