1. Thanks for the feedback, and I agree 'it just feels wrong', so I
will not do it.

2.  I am not very familiar with LaTeX and R and OSX yet, so I do not
want to make any changes.  I will keep on using TeXShop and once I am
more familiar with the system, I will change my setup.

3. I subscribed to TUG and will be getting their DVD.

So, far it is a very productive work environment: OSX + R + LaTeX + Beamer
