Emacs is quite nice, as it has a package for R integration called ESS (emacs
speaks statistics). I do not use a GUI on Mac or Linux and just use
emacs/ESS for running R as well as coding.
IDE's such as Kdevelop, Eclipse, etc., have a lot of enterprise-level tools
like automatic makefile generation, etc., but emacs works fine for me and
what I do.
