I just caught wind of R-fiddle, a site where you can play with R in a browser.
Kinda neat!

How much RAM is backing that up? What's their revenue model? How hard
is it to go to your nearest CRAN mirror and download R for Windows or
Mac? How hard is it to type 'apt-get install', 'yum install' or
'zypper install'? ;-)

Not enough, based on it not loading correctly ;)

I doubt they have one, and even if they did, they probably don't!

Harder than typing r-fiddle.org in your browser ;-)
