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.
