R Structure Explained

This post by Suraj Gupta explains it all. This is the first time I have seen a  concise and accessible explanation of the R environment structure and why it matters.

 

Addendum: This one by Digithead is also pretty good

    Explanation of this structure is unlikely to fit on two pages of text, the truth! Must be some Explanatory factor that will help determine the structure right!

    Social and political views have been affected by the growth of the concept of open source. Advocates in one field often support the expansion of open source in other fields.

    Structure is a fundamental, tangible or intangible notion referring to the recognition, observation, nature, and permanence of patterns and relationships of entities. This notion may itself be an object.

That's the concise version? A similar explanation of how things are found for Python would fit in a tweet. R really has some baggage...

Perhaps concise was not the best choice of words...Agreed that R has some unnecessary complexity under the hood, but for the most part I don't think these interfere with the typical user experience. Different story for developers though.
