I´m trying to move to ubuntu at all, but I don´t like R in Ubuntu because it runs in the terminal, so i can´t access directly to some options R gots in Windows.
Is there any R can i install in ubuntu which runs in hos own prompt or terminal??

Well - R under Linux *is* a terminal...
But there are GUI you can use, which are nicer then the windows one:
Have a look at Eclipse with the StatET plugin. One of the benefits is that is available for both Linux and Windows which simplifies things when you need to switch often between Windows and Linux (e.g. Windows at work and Linux at home).

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of.

I am using emacs + ESS - but as you have mentioned "options", I assume you
would like to e.g. manage package installation from the GUI - which you can
do with both mentioned GUIs.
Which one I recommend? I have used rkward briefly and thought it is very
nice, but I haven't hused RStudio, but it get's really good reviews (and it
looks nice) - so probably start with RStudio, seems to be easier when coming
from Windows, but it absolutely depends on your taste - try them out.
Concerning Eclipse and StatET: also nice, but more for writing scripts (if I
remember correctly - same as with ESS), and not that much the "R admin" as
installation of packages. But seriously: take a day and look at R from the
command line - it will be much easier and you have many more options, and
then use Eclipse or ESS.

Mario, it would help if you told us which options
from the Windows GUI you are missing.
If you want a really light solution then I use Kate as an editor. I go
make any changes I want then open a terminal
window, run R in that window and
source("myfileofcommands.r") or pipe commands from the file into the window.
may also help you

I can recommend Rkward. I use it and I'm fully satisfied with it. There is nice menu (You can "click" most of needed functions, load packages, ...), sheets with Your data, terminal with debugger and so on... Really good tool.
