I can provide some personal experience, in that RedHat Linux has not
only operated well, and is remarkably easy to set up, but seems to work
as well as any Linux distribution with R.  The default X-Windows setup
looks pretty similar to MS Windows, which may make the transition
easier.  In fact, it was the on/off - finally off attitude of MathSoft
toward producing a Linux version of S-Plus that started me looking for a
replacement (at that time I was running Slackware, which also worked
well, but was harder to set up).
