but
R is open source and free R has a steep learning curve
Part 3: Comparing R
R has lots of packages
R can be customized
R has the most advanced graphics
R has GUI to help make learning easier
R can connect to many database and
data types
multiple packages and ways to do the
same thing
by default stores memory in RAM
you need much better programming skills
customization needs command line
you need to know which package to use
