Revolution R Community is Revolution Analytics' free distribution of the open source R programming language -- enhanced for users looking for faster performance and greater stability. It's perfect for learning R and basic analysis.
Revolution R runs many computationally-intensive programs faster, especially on multiprocessor systems. It is built with high-performance compilers and linked with computational libraries that take advantage of multiple processors simultaneously to reduce the time to complete many common mathematical operations. You do not need to modify your existing R code to benefit from these optimizations.
While the base R software from the R-Project is available for open source users and technologists, we have added specific enhancements to R to make it more usable for a broader audience:
* Higher Performance: Optimized libraries and compiler techniques run most computation-intensive programs significantly faster than Base R. See our benchmarks.
* More Reliability: Revolution R is built upon the latest proven & stable R releases.
* Up-to-Date: Our constant check of the R project means critical bugs and fixes are incorporated -- less for you to worry about.
* ... and more! Unleash the processing power of multi-core processors: "ParallelR Lite" library included.
