What do you like best?
R studio does not have much format to follow. I can easily build in my own function and do application. What's more, I can knit the result in several different ways. The packages with instruction and explanation are useful for new user to understand the usage.
I can treat R studio as a calculator and notebook. It can show the results very fast and easy to operate.
It can add the Greek sign, matrix and several mathematical symbol as the comments. Therefore, we can knit an entire report at once with nice format, clear output and code.
It also have nice plot package such as ggplot, which can output a nice and colorful plot.
What do you dislike?
For the traditional plot, there is not too much choices to edit them in a nice way.
For the result, it does not show everything in one step. You have to run different codes and packages to get what you want.
It is kind of hard to contribute existed data in a new way. For example, if we want to inverse the entire data, treat one column and row, it is kind of hard to do it.
And R studio distinguish the capital word and lower case character, which we need to pay attention to this point every time.
