my personal feeling about R website is that it is as good as how it should be.
i don't have any problem to navigate around and know exactly where I
can find the thing that I need.
instead, knime.org website looks too fancy and is all about marketing.
i don't think it is necessary for R team to waste limited resource on
something unnecessary. plus, R website is not bad at all, even
compared with the ones of other open source languages.
