At PCWorld, Chris Kanaracus is reporting that Oracle has announced several new initiatives supporting the open source statistical analysis tool R. Ports to Solaris and AIX are among the new offerings, as is compatibility with some additional tools. "Oracle will deliver an open-source distribution of R that can work with the Sunperf, MKL and ACML math libraries, which are provided by Oracle, Intel and AMD, respectively. This will allow R 'to run extremely fast on all compatible hardware,' Oracle said in a statement."
