What do you dislike?
R has a vast documentation of help, description of packages and functions, it is difficult to find specific information at any given time, R is an online programming language of command, which does not involve the use of menus like other statistical programs, this makes many people who are not familiar with programming, it is very difficult to migrate to R. But this is more than a disadvantage, because programming will better understand the basis of statistics and data analysis, compared to other people who do not use R.
