Parallel computations in R using the package "multicore"

The package "multicore" in R does parallel processing of R code on machines with multiple cores (or CPUs). The single threaded nature of R is painful specially in simulations when big loops are run. "multicore" package is a very useful package that enables R to be run on multi cores. This package, however, runs on Linux or Mac and not in windows.
