While I would like to post a success story about the Brazilian post office using R to analyze its internal data, the real story is the use of R’s logo for its Registered mail :). Have a look:
My best guess is that someone searched for letter R in Google images and used the first hit as a symbol of registered mail. My second best guess is that someone really likes R and has a particular sense of humour.
