Pros and cons of the various sign up possibilities to RStudio Cloud

I want to take RStudio Cloud out for a test drive: are there any pros/cons to signing up with GitHub/Google vs creating a account specifically for RStudio Cloud? Ps I guess I can install more or less any CRAN package in my session, right?

No particular pros or cons.

You can install any package you like. You might run into cases where there is a system dependency that the package requires that is not currently present, or a package that fails to compile due to available memory. If you do, post a message to the Community and we will look into it.

Cool, thanks! I'm in, I'll let you know if I find any issues with packages. Thanks again!
