R Markdown

I was toying with the idea of moving to LaTex for word processing needs.  This post Markdown or LaTeX from Yihui Xie provides enlightenment on the subject.

A great workaround is using R Markdown. The development version of R Studio is awesome for the  R markdown features.  You can pick your output in either HTML, PDF, or Word and it can change.

Here is a screenshot of your options when using R markdown.
