Just about every other week I drop into our R clinic for a coffee break to listen to people's questions and maybe ask one myself. The clinic is about general use questions, not especially about Bioconductor packages, which is one reason to use R. The clinic is run by a very capable R expert. Originally I started going to the clinic thinking to myself that well, maybe this would be the last version of Stata I would buy, because R has come miles in development and documentation. More often than not, however, I conclude the opposite, and continue to regularly use Stata, thinking there is value is good commercial products.

One interesting function in R that I can't find in Stata is Frank Harrell's nomogram function in the Design package, which essentially is a graphical alternative to outreg or estout.
