who of you in this forum uses R ( with the multicore, SNOW or CUDA packages, so for advanced calculations that need more power than a workstation CPU? On which hardware do you compute these scripts? At home/ at work or do you have data center access somewhere?

The background of these questions is the following: I am currently writing my M.Sc. thesis about R and High-Performance-Computing and need a strong knowledge about who actually uses R. I read that R had 1 million users in 2008, bu thats more or less the only user statistics I could find on this topic - so I hope for your answers!

Sincerely Heinrich
