So he got a free machine. I use 10.3.9 at home on my snowball iMac
because it's solid, stable, and Just Works(tm). Since the only reason
to blow a C-note on 10.4 (or 5) would be to let me use various chunks of
software, I haven't. I can do far more than I need w/ R-2.2.1 for home
use. I do use 2.8.x at work (where, as a cheap old %$@*#^$#, I haven't
upgraded from 10.4.11 *_*).
My recommendation to the OP would be to use 2.2.1 w/ the install package
unless there are specific R-packages you cant live without.
