Is that 7 small questions or one big one?

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

An attempt to contact the Delphi, I presume. But I'm afraid the oracle is unavailable.

It may have been a futile quest to bring the thread back on track (he is new here). In that spirit I will reiterate a point a made earlier and expand briefly on it. When comparing alternative math/stat/ML courses, e.g. going deeper into ML versus broadening your general computational math skills, I'd put at least 80% of the weight on course attributes other than which programming language is being employed. Is the professor good? Does the subject excite you? Do you think you'll do reasonably well in it (possibly a particular concern for a graduate level class)? My standard advice for course selection in general is to study something hard and useful, but in this case that may well apply to both of your alternatives.

The question marks indicate, why are you posting such irrelevant things such as how to install R from linux, in my thread?  Generally, at least on the 1st page, people stay on topic to the OP.

Ok yes, I see your point.  Those are some good questions that I should be asking myself.  Getting good grades is important for me at the moment hah.  Cheers.
