My general disappointment with the available R GUI's has finally led me to develop my own, Renvy, a simple GUI front-end to R without much of the bells and whistles. Think of Geany for coding, Renvy is to R. [Actually Geany can integrate R, it just does it poorly].

R is a statistical programming language that has gained a lot of traction amongst biologists due to the excellent Bioconductor package which allows researchers to do amazing amounts of analysis with the minimum of fuss.

You can follow the progress of Renvy here. Suffice to say it is not usable currently!
