<PurpleSym>rekado__: The name change only seems to affect the company, not the IDE, right?
<rekado>PurpleSym: it’s not clear. Their non-free software will be renamed, but they also say that the name “RStudio” will remain (perhaps juts for their free offering).
<PurpleSym>That’s how I would read it too.
<rekado>to me this also means that RStudio will be sidelined even more as they expand their proprietary variant with added support for other languages.
<PurpleSym>Yeah, that’s one of my worries too, even though they talk about their “commitment to open source”. Maybe not even intentionally, but simply due to lack of manpower.
