I remember them well. I was raised in South Africa where International Rescue was dubbed into Afrikaans. It was one of the few shows worth watching in Afrikaans.
Looks very nice. Looks remarkably similar to Rstudio. Competition? Appears so. Competition is a good thing. Why would I choose one over the other? Microsoft's business model (and the things that they made me do to protect their revenue stream) has been problematic to me in the past. Things look different under Microsoft's new leadership. Nevertheless Microsoft remains a large corporation and corporations need to protect themselves. It is R, about 10 years ago, that opened my eyes to the virtues of free and open source software over proprietary and pay-for-license software. Discuss!
I switched on Vim mode in RStudio preview. I did not know how to get started. That may be because I am not a real programmer and I only program in R. I would love to see a 60 - 90 second screencast of someone using Vim in RStudio while working on some simple code. Will you do it? Thanking you in anticipation.
