Installing RStudio is definitely a breeze. Yes, it allows to choose between several theme for syntax colouring. It is a great tool. I'm looking forward to its future release.

Meanwhile, been trying Eclipse/StarET for a while, which is more preferred in my case but may not apply to all.

It has great potential but currently the syntax colouring is very poor (black, blue, or green, that's it ...) and the tabs are not movable etc.

Agree that it would be nice to drag the order of the tabs around, but a workaround is to close tabs and open them in an appropriate order.  I personally like the (installation ease)/functionality ratio of RStudio.
