Carrying on in the portable apps vein, R is rapidly becoming the de facto standard in statistical analysis software for research. Its command line driven so not for the point-and-click brigade but incredibly powerful and, importantly, all the algorithms are peer reviewed. If they get in to R then they have to be good. It therefore surprised me when I realised that I hadn’t looked for a portable version. And it’s not quite as obvious to find as I thought it might be, but Andrew Radd has put together a portable version in the portableapps.com vein. Well worth a download.
