Hi Patrick,

I've read it quickly and it seems to be a good resource for beginners 
that have just downloaded R and have no idea what to do.
My guess is that it should be a good introduction to other documents 
such as the "An introduction to R".

I'll test it with the next students in my team that will have to learn R!

One good thing would be to have it as PDF, it's easier to have it always 
close to you.
