New Zealand’s Sunday Star Times last weekend featured a profile on Ross Ihaka, co-creator of R:

The down-to-earth associate statistics professor and his fellow researcher Robert Gentleman are famous around the world for developing R programming – a "glorified calculator" that crunches data.

R programming allows for statistical computing and graphics and is used by thousands of companies worldwide – and all of them do it free.

I’m not sure about the characterization of R as a "glorified calculator" — see here for a more in-depth description of R — but it’s some nice home-town coverage about the project nonetheless.
