[R] Is R really an open source S+ ?

This is not a criticism. I'm just curious. Is there an effort to keep R
comparable to S+?
Or are the two languages diverging? I am doing what probably legions have
done before me,
and legions will after me...using R on examples from text books written with
S+ code. Most of the
time everything appears to be equivalent. And then there are amazing
divergences in commands. For
why this difference?
S: T, F
R: TRUE, FALSE
For those who want to use open source R but still use the excellent S+
literature...these differences can be confusing. I can also appreciate the
stress on authors attempting to express code that works in both languages.
