    But I have some doubts regarding R: how does using R differ from using
software packages, like SPSS (which is the one I´m used to)? What are the
advantages of using R when compared? Is flexibility an issue? What about the
learning curve? Is it 

It depends on your purpose. I would still use spss to produce tables, but R
for statistical analysis.
