R is one of the go-to open-source statistical software available.
Many websites can rely on it to analyze data or offer custom apps. I need it for various sites i am developing.
Unfortunately one requires root access to install R and DreamHost no longer supports root access for its VPS (Gator and InMotion do).
It would be great (and dramatically increase the prospects of me staying with DreamHost’s VPS) if DreamHost offered the option to install R to users without root access.
