I am a fortran IV programmer which happen to program in python. R or the like is just decoration.

Most probably I have the right age: I started to program
in the early 80s.

You do not need R at all.
But maybe once you start to use it, you might like it.

So why would you ask yourself about a different code?

Data handling is an issue in every program, and specific to some (any) programming languages.

BigData is a problem also in fortran IV.

Why should R be any special?
