R is a very nice environment for statistical computing with long history and extensive library coverage. However I find it challenging to search for the right library implementation (usually there are several implementations of the same algorithm). Also, since R is a special purpose language, I often need to do tasks like pre-processing in another language, which involves some context switching cost. For these reasons I ended up choosing Scikit-Learn.
