Hi Wensui,

I do think you need to do something with R. Any language will be
forgotten if you don't use it for a long time - at least that's true
for me. For example, if you have enough time, why not write a book
named "R for SAS users" or something like that? (although there's an
English book 'R for SAS and SPSS Users', you may still write a Chinese
one from your own experience)
