I agree with most of what he said here. I would note however
that we routinely have to use the X11() device instead of
quartz() device in R due to speed issues. I have code that
would take several minutes drawing a heatmap using quartz
device. One day I accidentally started X11 device instead
and found the same code executed in about fifteen seconds.
