Johannes Huesing sent a message to stat-lisp-news at stat.umn.edu
regarding an article in Linux-Magazin (German) on statistical software
for Linux.  I enclose excerpts.

Can anyone summarize what was said about R in the article?  If there
is a web site for the article I would appreciate learning of the URL.
I must admit, though, the my abilities in German are much less
impressive than the abilities in English of most of the native
German-speakers in this group.  A summary in English would be most welcome.

Subject: Media coverage 

The periodical Linux-Magazin, which is the only periodical devoted
to Linux in German language, has dedicated a 13-page article to
statistical software available in Linux. One and a half pages were
dedicated to ViSta.

It is worth mentioning that only R got more coverage in the article than
ViSta (other programs being Splus, Stata, P-Stat, PSPP, XploRe).
