Although I use both R and RapidMiner in my work, I have been “late to the party” in installing RapidMiner’s R extension on my Windows machine. The primary reason being that over time I have built a regular workflow that uses these two tools separately. Also, I am one of those folks who don’t go looking for trouble.

Freed a few years later, her life was destroyed and later died of alcohol poisoning.
My rebuttal to the 1 in 73 million argument is as follows:
