I would hasten to add that according to R Core, there is precisely one way to
use R on Windows: using MinGW.
For the rest, you're on your own. And on Windows I have never found that to
be a good starting position.
As for gputools: these are pretty compiler-dependent because of way Nvidia
wraps its stuff up, and I would be almost certain that on that particular OS
you are required to use the compiler by the same firm, which pretty much
precludes using R object code with it. Unless you are really detemined, and
really know the toolchain.
So in short, I'd stick to Linux if you want to work with GPUs from R.
