    Here's what I heard from IBM support.

    "I just found out that for for loading the SparkR library we will need to have R language notebooks on our service. Currently only Python and Scala notebooks are available, hence it will be not be possible to load the SparkR library for now. Although the feature will be available early next year."

    Bit of a bummer. Sets the R developers in this competition at a disadvantage compared to Python and Scala.

    Hi Rob,

    Sorry about that. I'm receiving similar feedback, but am still in conversation about it. If something changes during our discussions I'll let you know.

    Best,
