R is developed on Linux, so there shouldn't be too much restrictions 
on whatever distri you're going to use!
If running a new shiny Desktop you might consider other aspects than 
using R, which should run with every Linux distribution.
If you're looking for something comfortable to install and maintain 
you might give Quatian a try 
(http://dirk.eddelbuettel.com/quantian.html). This is a somewhat 
modified Knoppix trimmed to statistical analysis (not entirely, though)
