I am impressed!

I have R 1.4.1 installed on a remote Solaris system, and R 1.4.0 
installed on my desktop Macintosh running OS X.

I did some work using R on the Solaris system, i.e., read some data, 
wrote some functions to do things with the data, including x11 

I mounted the Solaris directories where I did the work on my Mac 
using NFS. Running R 1.4.0 on my Mac in the mounted directories, 
using the data and functions created with R 1.4.1 on the Solaris box, 
works like a charm. No need to actually transfer the .RData files 
from one computer to the other.

Congratulations and thanks to the R core team and other contributors 
for this achievement.
