Dear R makers and users:

After reading the FAQ and the comments on the
comparison between R and S, I still have an important
(at least for me) question: How is R compared
to the new version of Splus 5.0  (for unix including Linux)?

I must pay particular atention to the efficiency
with large datasets and, more generally speaking,
to the efficiency with memory management.
I use Splus since version 3.x (on Unix) and now
use Splus 4.5 for Windows (which gives me tons
of memory problems). I'm considering whether
going on with Splus and get Splus 5.0 for Linux
or switch to R or to X-ploRe. 

I normally use Splus to process (large)
datasets retrieved from multi-spectral remotely-sensed

Your opinions are most valuable for me!
