Well, the iMac's are already shipping. We are waiting for
several things: improvements in the Intel compiler
sequence (it compiles all of R, but there are linking and
runtime problems) and for Apple to update gfortran in
its CVS and make it compile on Mactel (although it is
optimistic to hope this will happen any time soon). My
guess is there a usable R in a month.
