Re: No regression line formulas in Office.org calc



I spent a couple hours yesterday fiddling with R, and you're right, the command line environment is more like a brick wall than a mere hurdle. I check out the GUI's you and others suggested.

As an R user, I would support the recommendations, though the GNOME GUI
is both experimental and limited in functionality. It really only
provides some basic admin functions as a shell in lieu of using a
standard terminal and not much else. Similar to the GUI provided under
Windows to a limited extent. It won't provide what the GUI's below
provide, which is analytic functionality.

If a command line driven environment is a hurdle for you, take a look at
two of the evolving GUI's available for R:
