I had to dump Ubuntu Linux with issues of Redis, R, and doRedis Now on Windows 7 Ultimate
I hate stating this but one of the big problems is the lack of help you get with Linux. I am not an expert on it nor do I have the patience to waste time figuring stuff out. Everything went well until I hit some strange error of no registering a Redis job within doRedis in R. Works fine in Virtual Machine of Ubuntu. Works fine in my Windows 7 so WTF? Well, give the WIndows version a try with a potential of 100% around here. Ugh. Not happy but have no choice with the frustration of Linux.
